Our client Ignitia was established in 2015. The headquarter is in Stockholm, Sweden. They have 2 offices in Africa. Ignitia’s main product is a weather forecasting model. The team provides critical weather data and forecasts to farmers and agribusinesses through various channels. Let me give some more ideas about the process. So first farmers subscribe to receive forecasts, then Ignita’s weather model develops localized forecasts based on GPS, These forecasts are delivered via SMS/Mobile app. Farmers decide when it is best to plant, fertilize, harvest and etc based on the forecasts. This help small-scale farmers have the ability to double yields and incomes and also reduce food insecurity.
