Founded: 2016 – Tel Aviv, Israel

Co-Founders:
Asaf Levy, Assaf Gavish

Elevator Pitch:
AI and deep learning hold enormous promise for the future of farming – but growers want to see results today. That’s why MyCrops’ smart crop monitoring tools focus on delivering insights from day 1.

Problem They Solve:
Our deep learning algorithms for predictive analytics are based on unique data sets generated from hundreds of thousands of mobile app users. That’s rich context for real insights. You’ll get clear dashboard views to equip your entire team with numbers they can actually use to perform their jobs better.

Impact:
When it comes to solving the environmental challenges we face today, most people fall in one of two camps. Either technology will help us safely meet the needs of a growing world population, or the burdens of uncharted consumption will eventually exhaust our planet.

As farmers, we see no alternative to respecting and preserving the earth’s resources. But as computer vision experts, our mission is to advance the tech-driven version of the future by empowering growers to meet their goals sustainably.

Stage:
Pre-Seed
