“I did my bachelors in Agriculture Marketing from GKVK, Bangalore. During our last semester, we had a course for work experience in which we had to stay with farmers in villages for about 3 months. This was an effort for us to learn about agriculture more deeply along with teaching them about technologies they weren't aware of.We thought that the farmers would not be very open to accepting the modern technologies we were talking about but it turned out that they were very curious and got acclimatized to the various technologies quickly. Their immediate questions were about how to include the technologies into their farming practices.We did some research but technologies like agricultural drones, farm robots were not available in India then. People think that Indian agriculture is not advanced. But the problem doesn't lie in the technologies not existing, rather there need to be efforts made to make them available and affordable. The farmers would definitely use these products if this was made possible.After my graduation, I decided to do my MBA in Business Entrepreneurship from EDII, Ahmedabad during which I met Nitin Singh and co-founded our startup in 2019. We started working on agricultural drones and explored the scope for the development of new opportunities as well. We are currently working with technologies like hydroponics, aquaponics, microponics, precision farming drones, and coffee harvester.I realised that if you don't have passion, it is very difficult to survive in this challenging world. Before entering the field of entrepreneurship, it is very important to make sure that you have a strong desire to do so.”
