We are Artenal, a Vancouver-based start-up focusing on supporting farmers through artificial intelligence and technology.
We started by identifying a gap in the agriculture industry where current startups and technologies acted more like vitamins than pain killers for the farmers. We realized that farmers face critical labor shortages and have inefficient harvesting periods as humans have physical limits in terms of accuracy and speed during harvests.
We came up with a simple solution – why not let a robot do it?
Our vision is to eradicate hunger and food shortages all across the globe. Our mission is to help humanity become self-sustainable for the next hundreds of years.
