iFarm is an agtech startup that provides innovative solutions for growing fresh greens, berries and vegetables.
iFarm creates technologies that enable anyone to grow fresh vegetables, berries, greens and edible flowers for personal use or commercial purposes.
iFarm was founded in 2017 by Max Chizhov, AlexLyskovsky and KonstantinUlianov. The company is headquartered in Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland.
iFarm is on a mission to allow everyone on Earth to grow their own healthy food in a sustainable way and be independent of the supply chain.
iFarm’s automated vertical farm management technologies allow customers to start growing salads, greens, berries and vegetables in the urban environment: from empty warehouses and factory shops to basements and distribution centres. The technology is based on an adaptive protocol that includes computer vision, machine learning, the data about thousands of plants collected from a distributed network of farms as well as the industry knowledge.
iFarm has developed iFarm Growtune tech platform, which enables operations of multiple varieties of vertical farms and quadrupling the number of plants available to iFarm’s tech. The iFarm Growtune platform can determine the plant’s weight, any growth deviations or pathologies and build a system that improves crops’ quality characteristics on its own.
iFarm is backed by Gagarin Capital Partner, Matrix Capital, IMI.VC, Impulse VC and others. The company raised €3.3M ($4M) in Seed round on Aug 20, 2020. This brings iFarm's total funding to $7M to date.
