In the space of a year, South African agritech enterprise Aerobotics has made strategic inroads into the US agriculture industry.
Propelled by world-leading technology, the South African firm hope its work so far puts it in a position to mushroom into a global data and analytics software company serving the entire agriculture value chain.
The company’s CEO, James Paterson, says the business is ready to build on its highly successful launch in the US and strategically drop further roots and extend services in numerous regions around the world.
This includes both North and South America, South Africa and Australia among others, in addition to riding the demand for its world-leading technology, Paterson says strategic partnerships throughout the agriculture value chain could become “game changers”.
He commented: “The awards are obviously a testament to the solid proposition we offer and validation of the technology that we have and continue to develop. Beating out international counterparts in the InVivo Quest Iberia awards, for instance, proves to us that we really are onto something great, leading our international peers.
“However, we like our work to speak for itself. We are offering real products that work and deliver value. Globally, we have more than 140 000 hectares of farmland on the platform, and growing every week. We have a real product stack, delivering real value to real clients.”
Adding: “We are at the forefront of developing the best and most cutting-edge technology out there, to solve the largest and most complex problems. This is just the beginning – going forward, we are switching it up to solve even bigger problems, problems that have been around for decades.”
