GrainNet Covers Telesense’ $6.5M Series A

In a recent article, GrainNet covered Telesense’s $6.5M Series A capital raise. In the article, CEO Naeem Zafar speaks about his company’s core value proposition:

“Being able to safely store grain for longer periods of time, and having insight into what will happen to it in the future, will allow farmers and traders more choices about if and when to sell. Intelligent, data-driven decisions will help decrease the pressure of seasonal pricing fluctuations, global trade and tariff concerns, and currency issues,” stated TeleSense Co-Founder and CEO Naeem Zafar.

“We want storage operators to have a clear view of the condition of all their stored grain, so potential issues can be detected and any negative business impact mitigated.”
