The Climate Corporation
I joined Climate in May 2012 while we were a break out start-up, and our focus was weather insurance. In spring 2013 we tested the idea of data for farming optimization and by fall 2013 we had soft-launched a precision agriculture platform next to the insurance platform. In October 2013 we were purchased by Monsanto and by spring 2014 our business was validated with the first ever farming operations platform. Climate’s precision agriculture platform now has an incredible 100m acres mapped and 70m of those acres are reviewed on a daily basis.
