We are happy to announce that on February 17, 2022, FieldSense raised a €2.9M seed round to accelerate the expansion of our hyper-local weather solutions for farmers. The round was led by Danish Agro, with Rockstart and Pabjergfonden as co-investors, and marks a pivotal milestone on our journey to bring better weather solutions to farmers.

This investment allows us to further cement our position in existing markets as well as look towards aggressive expansion in new, exciting markets. John Smedegaard, CEO in FieldSense, states:

“The plan is to strengthen our position in Germany, which is one of our absolute key markets. Furthermore, we are looking towards Poland and England which are the next primary countries we wish to expand into. The demand for hyper-local weather data is already there, and this investment allows us to supply that demand”.

The funding round welcomes new forces
In addition to the already existing investors Danish Agro and Pajbjergfonden, this investment round also welcomes a new investor: Rockstart, an early stage investor specialising in AgriFood, Energy and Emerging Technologies. John Smedegaard comments:

“Our current investors are key agro organizations and tightly link us to a great network of farmers. Rockstart brings a lot of new perspectives to the table, but their expertise in Agtech scalability is particularly useful for us and will be crucial for our next steps”.

We are very excited about the journey that this investment allows us to embark on. We know the value that hyper-local weather data bring to farmers and are happy to be able to offer our services to an unprecedented amount of farmers.
