In one of their first media appearances together, Trellus Co-founders Adam Haber, JR Jensen, and Brian Berkery were interviewed by Long Island Main Street News, a Vision Long Island production. The discussion was moderated by Eric Alexander, Director of Vision Long Island and founder of LI Main Street Alliance.
Vision Long Island shared the video on Facebook with the following caption:
“We were back with another edition of the Long Island Main Street News interviews. This one connected us to the partners of a new company called Trellus, Adam Haber, JR Jensen, and Brian Berkery.
This new company can help downtown businesses by creating a [same-day delivery] platform that can get local products to customers the same day. They are starting up in Nassau County and parts of Western Suffolk and surely worth exploring to help our businesses compete with Amazon and others.
Pleasure to have a new technology platform in the corner of brick-and-mortar stores out here. Check it out…”
According to their website, the mission of Vision Long Island is as follows:
“Vision joins with others to promote more livable, economically sustainable and environmentally responsible growth on Long Island through Smart Growth.

A key objective is to strength communities from the start by actively involving local stakeholders in planning.
