Agvisor PRO Inc, a platform that connects farmers with independent advisors, industry experts, and other agriculture professionals for scheduled sessions, has closed a $1.5 million seed funding round.
The seed funding is financed by six Canadian and U.S. agricultural business investors, and builds on the Founder and Friends & Farmer rounds of funding, the company says.
AgVisorPRO also announced the appointment of two new directors to its board: Greg Andrukow and Mareese Keane. The two join Rob Saik as directors of the company.
“As we work to grow the AGvisorPRO channel it is wonderful to have the confidence of a group of investors who have such deep agricultural domain expertise,” says Robert Saik, CEO. “Together with the funding, the addition of Mareese Keane and Greg Andrukow to our board, will accelerate the development of AGvisorPRO into a global platform.”
The company also announced that THRIVE has named AGvisorPRO as a finalist in their 2021 competition.
“Additionally, we are thrilled to be named a finalist in the SVG THRIVE Canada Challenge,” says Saik, “THRIVE is the top agriculture accelerator in the world and we are excited to be recognized as a leading Canadian ag tech start-up.”
