Agrimetrics has created a unique data platform for the agrifood sector, connecting rich field data most relevant to addressing sustainable food production as well as building new data capabilities to support industry and start-ups across the sector.
As one of the 50 Game Changers, Agrimetrics, joins a community of future-facing start-ups and scale-ups, looking to drive change through product and service innovation.
Launched in 2016 by ConnectTVT founder, Louize Clarke, the 50 Game Changers was designed to give a voice to, and connect, the Thames Valley's digital ecosystem.
Previous Changers include Fairsail, acquired by Sage People, Oxford Nanopore, who recently closed a £100m investment round, and Datasift, acquired by Meltwater this year.
Louize explains, "50 Game Changers is so much more than a list of highest turnover companies – it's about those championing change. To create a thriving digital landscape, we have to encourage a diverse mix of businesses across our innovation layers. We love to give a voice to those supporting community projects, the early stage start-ups right through to those heading towards their exits."
This year's cohort is the strongest to date and have, collectively, secured over £55m in funding in the last 12 months. The programme is supported by Henley Business School, EY, FSE and Fora.
Agrimetrics CEO, David Flanders says: "We are delighted to be recognised as a business championing new technology and change. Linking vast amounts of siloed data from the across the food and farming system offers farmers, industry and society a great opportunity to extract sustainable answers to our most pressing local – and food global challenges."
The 50 Game Changers publication will be distributed on 22nd
