Excellent Work

We've just started

So far we've improved the lives of over 200 farmers. We have 3 products and offer one crucial service. We have hundreds of thousands more to go.This is the right time to join us.

Our Process

Our Process

We strongly believe in impact. Our research doesn't end up in our labs only. Our processes involve design thinking, research, prototyping and product development.

01

Research

Leveraging cutting edge technologies like Data Analytics, Big Data, Machine Learning and IoT, we research into how these technologies can have a direct or indirect impact on the average person. Our work has direct impact because we're part of the people. Having real experiences as farmers, it's easier for us to connect with the locals and their problems.

02

Building

Our diverse and inclusive team of experienced and talented software developers, Data Scientists, Researchers and Field Operators, work collaboratively to build solution based on intensive research done by our team. These problems are built with the farmers at the center and impact tops it all.

03

Launch

We understand working with complicated AI Algorithms and Data can be tricky. Our development process involves close monitoring and beta testing to allow us generate more real-world data and improve the performance of our models.

Mission

Mission

Our biggest mission is to contribute enormously to the UNs' SDG Goal 2, which seeks to End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture.
