We're thrilled to welcome eight startups to our Sente Family. These startups bring a fresh approach to meeting the demands of the ever-changing Indoor AgTech space.
"Indoor Agriculture can provide innovative solutions to growing challenges related to supply of nourishing food to all the communities across the globe, in sustainable and efficient ways. Investing in new technologies that make indoor agriculture more efficient not only makes business sense, but it also is impactful." - Serhat Cicekoglu, Sente Founder & CEO.
Our Indoor AgTech program participants worked with us and our partners, GrowRay Technologies and NOBO, to prepare them better to attract serious investors and customers. They worked on projects connecting them with indoor and greenhouse customers and an ecosystem of indoor AgTech investors and service providers.
Five startups are joining our portfolio companies' roster and will receive financial investment and official hands-on mentorship. The new additions to our portfolio are:
AgEye Technologies – technology that helps indoor farms become sustainable and scalable through significant operational cost reductions.
iShence AgTech – provides growers with affordable and effective solutions combining agronomic knowledge with cutting edge technology.
PhenoLogic – automates a complex part of plant & crop production, saving money and time while increasing production yields.
