Nanalyze Covers Finistere Market Map and CropX

In a recent article, Nanalyze referenced Finistere’s 2018 Agtech Investment Review investment landscape map. From the article.

While the Internet oThings (IoT) continues to transform practically every aspect of our existence, the agriculture sector is only now starting to really benefit from technologies like sensors. Farmers are typically old-school, and like clinging to age-old practices and rudimentary machinery, resulting in anxious guesstimates of crop yields each season as opposed to corporate farming operations that use precision agriculture to predict yields with a high degree of accuracy. To be a competitive farmer today, you need to know about the latest and greatest in smart farming technologies. To help us all out, the folks over at Finistere Ventures put together an awesome market map which listed out 12 startups working on sensors and smart farming equipment. Here’s a closer look at each one.
