AgFunder Drones in Agriculture

SLANTRANGE was featured in a recent article by Louisa Burwood-Taylor at AgFunder News titled, “The Next Generation of Drone Technologies For Agriculture“. The article explores some of the current challenges related to the use of drone technology in agriculture, such as the need for more actionable information on shorter processing timescales, and presents SLANTRANGE as one solution to these challenges. Several other topics are explored, including advances in sensors and the integration of artificial intelligence techniques to improve the analytics.

“Farmers and agronomists need to be able to act upon the information delivered by these systems in a way that shows a tangible return on investment,” Ewan MacFarlane, head of digital agronomy at Origin Enterprises in the UK tells AgFunderNews. “For that, it needs to be made available to them at the time and place that it is needed.”

Bloomberg Lists SLANTRANGE as 1 of 50 Most Promising Startups You’ve Never Heard Of

Bloomberg Logo

SLANTRANGE was honored to be included in Bloomberg’s recent list of the “50 Most Promising Startups You’ve Never Heard Of“. The authors started with 50,000 companies founded in the past six years and used criteria such as the amount of funding rounds, the time between funding rounds, the background of the founders, whether the founders had worked together in the past, and many other business factors to narrow the list down to only 50 companies. Notably, SLANTRANGE was the only company from San Diego on the list.

There are a few early clues that a startup will be successful, according to market researcher Quid: Have the company’s founders worked together before? Is the business in a hot sector, one where many other new startups are also focusing? Has it raised funding at a quick pace? Based on those criteria and others, Quid looked at more than 50,000 companies and chose 50 it deemed the most promising.
