Due to production irregularities, farmers today face several challenges on the price of their yields or the costs of their supplies. Years of increased reliance on politicians and farm subsidies have dragged farmers under the hook and craw of international politics and geopolitical climate. What they need is shielding from droughts and other changes to their land arising from climate change. Further, they need assurances from banks and trusted lenders that their financial access would not be constricted when they require to make the change.
That’s where Starlight LLC can help. Starlight LLC is a consulting and technology organization that references top science to develop a vision of the future that farmers can trust to manage their long-term forecasting and planning. The company partners with startups, investors, and entrepreneurs to provide actionable next steps. Clients can leverage this advantage and create insightful operator conditions, and ultimately set up farmers to receive personalized behavioral insights of their crop and cattle. “Our mission is going wherever necessary to defend food and the farmers that grow that food for our America,” says David Bernat, the President/CEO and Founder of Starlight LLC.
Starlight understands that connectivity services of the Internet are perhaps the most valuable resource, for at least the next several years, in the supply chain of data solutions.
So, the company identifies providers of Internet backbone technology and then consults with them to follow their lead on where innovation is happening in satellite, IoT, mobile, documents, APIs, and AI.
From there, Starlight allows ‘the experts be the experts.’ These people have deep relationships with farmers and communities that far surpass what Starlight can do in the short term as an upstart.
“Our primary job is connecting businesses to the best new innovation coming out of defense and other businesses,” states Bernat. “We are railroad switch operators of innovation; we aim to be smart infrastructure. Our real job is to defend the food supply chain of America.”

Recognizing the backlog of technology innovation that America has, Starlight believes that successful economic capitalization to farmers is the key. Starlight takes this mission very seriously. “What we have found is that simply recognizing these facts is enough to put us ahead of our competitors in the markets of emerging need. And that is a secret sauce we can replicate for a very long time,” states Bernat. He further mentions that India and Africa are incredibly in-need markets for the insights that Starlight is able to provide, and his hope for the future is to extend the opportunity to connect with these markets to address their needs early and well before conflict may arise. But the company recognizes the fact that it has to be patient and wait for these markets to develop on their own.
“Children will be seeing skies of a future on the other side of climate change, in which the Earth has been steered to safety without being terraformed or terrorized. It is my hope and wish that we provide those little Earthlings with the infrastructure, delight, and education their lives deserve, while solving the problems which have been handed to us by generations before. Our generation has the opportunity to make many superheroes among us all,” says Bernat. Indeed, movies, education, literature, libraries, and books will undoubtedly play a large part in preparing the entirety of the world, regardless of class or nation of birth, for access to equity. That’s the thunderbolt of insight to the whole project of what Starlight is and will be, and they treat that as a directive to start with what farmers and families need to thrive and enjoy the prosperity of the future.
