Investment to digitise agricultural supply chain

KisanHub is a big data based, online, one-stop shop, providing all the operational data farmers need to grow more and use less, wherever they are in the world. The venture has headquarters in Cambridge, UK, with operations in Pune, India.

The investment will be used to continue developing the digital platform that will help companies manage their supply chains efficiently, by connecting directly with their farmers to collect information and by revealing supply chain insights.

Dr Sachin Shende, Co-founder and CEO of KisanHub, said: “Our existing clients are looking to scale the implementation across tens of thousands of farmers growing crops on millions of hectares of land spanning their global supply chain. This is a massive undertaking, and also a massive opportunity, for KisanHub with a big positive impact on sustainability.”

The investment round was led by venture capital firm Sistema VC and existing investors – Notion and IQ Capital.
