I-Venture @ ISB
A proud moment for us, as the young founders – Nikita Tiwari and Harsh Agrawal of NEERX, an AIC-ISB portfolio startup, have been recognised under Forbes India 30 Under 30 2023 in the Agritech category.
NEERX’s smart sensor, SHOOL, analyses soil health in a couple of seconds to equip the farmer with real-time information. Information like pest infestation, water and fertiliser retention, and productivity on the sensor-synced mobile app helps improve harvest and farmer income. The sensor, which started as a college project for Nikita Tiwari and Harsh Agrawal, was developed for industrial use from 2019 onwards and is priced at Rs 12,000 and can be rented at Rs 1,000-2,000 per month.
NEERX (www.neerx.in) works with farmers across Chhattisgarh, Gujarat, Maharashtra and Rajasthan, and has tie-ups with 60 organisations that impact 15,000-20,000 farmers.
We congratulate the founders on achieving this major milestone and wish them the very best.
