We know what it is like to be a small company with a good idea, limited resources and significant barriers to entry into our industry niche. The agtech industry is innovating more rapidly now than ever before, and the importance of having new entrants join the industry in our common quest to sustainably feed a growing population, has never been bigger.

In the early years of Leaf we benefited greatly from credits programs like AWS Activate ourselves, and we therefore want to make sure we pay this forward to other startups in our industry. Through our unified farm data API we bring down technical barriers by eliminating what used to be months to years of redundant work for companies of all sizes. For those new startups with limited resources looking to get in the fast lane toward their MVP, having access to our farm data API can mean the difference between success and …

Leaf’s mission is to drive food and agriculture into the future as quickly as possible. We’re inspired by the ambition and vision of the newest companies in the industry and believe that by making the power of Leaf available to early stage companies we as an industry will accomplish our mission faster.
