Mr. Cotton Rohrscheib: CEO of Rohrscheib Capital & COO at Grainster
Cotton Rohrscheib is the CEO of Rohrscheib Capital Partners. Over the past 20 years he has been associated with numerous projects in the IT, Healthcare, and Agriculture industries. Born a serial entrepreneur, Cotton has personally been involved in several startups, product launches, and brand acquisitions during his career and has consulted on hundreds of projects for clients around the world. Having grown up on his family’s farm in Eastern Arkansas, he is very familiar with farm management and traditional row crop production. His family has also been involved in beef & cattle production for 3 generations and has numerous operations around the state.
Cotton’s passion has always been to introduce emerging technologies into agriculture to create solutions that not only assist in farm management but also increase production, profitability, and sustainability.
Earlier this year Rohrscheib stepped down as partner of an award-winning creative agency he co-founded 10 years ago to assume the role of Chief Operating Officer of Grainster, an agri-tech startup based in Central Arkansas. In 2014, he co-founded Discountabetes; a low-cost, concierge service for diabetics built around a revolutionary blood glucose meter invented by one of his co-founders.
Cotton is also a National Weather Service certified storm spotter, member of the Faulkner County Emergency Response Team, and a retired storm chaser. He also serves on several advisory boards for non-profits in Central Arkansas and is an ordained minister. When not working he can be found spending time with his wife of 10 years, Donna, and his 3 year old son, Spencer —who they adopted in 2012.
