Agro-Know is one of the just 50 top European ICT SMEs and web entrepreneurs that were selected by SmartAgriFood (SAF) to develop smart applications and services for agriculture using FIWARE technologies following a European wide call that resulted in over 150 applications. The outcome of this collaboration is Organic-AgriWare: a FIspace-powered web application (click here to access it) that aims at serving stakeholders in organic agriculture by providing them with quality information on topics of interest to them in a user-friendly format. The app is developed with the precious contributions from ICROFS and SEGES from Denmark.
These 50 SmartAgriFood beneficiaries will have the opportunity to present their work during the SAF2 Pitch & Demo event that will take place in The Hague between 16 & 17 of September – this means tomorrow and the day after!
Our COO Giannis Stoitsis is traveling to The Hague and he will only have 10 mins to present our work before the Evaluation Committee (that consists of FIWARE experts and business investors); from a total of 50 apps, about 20-25 will get funding for stage 2 (which sums to EUR 60K) and another 3-5 “High Flyers” will get 100K. The team has worked hard for this event and we already have a nice set of slides as well as a related video prepared for the occasion; they can only be shared after the event though 🙂
We can now only keep our fingers crossed and send our positive energy from sunny Athens to Giannis; really looking forward to receiving some good news!
