Why we invest

Farmers everywhere need weather forecasts. Accurate forecasts can double crop yields, but smallholder farmers in tropical Africa have never had access to them –- even more critical now that climate change is disrupting traditional patterns of weather.  Ignitia sell GPS-customized and reliable weather forecasts to farmers via simple SMS messaging. The mobile phone revolution has made it possible to market and deliver low cost forecasts to millions of smallholder farmers.
