CropSafe, an Irish farming tech platform provider, raised over $3M in seed funding.
The round was led by Elefund, with participation from Foundation Capital, Global Founders Capital, V1.VC and Great Oaks Capital, as well as angel investors Cory Levy, Josh Browder, and former head of strategy at Microsoft, Charlie Songhurst.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate growth in the U.S. and expand their teams that focus on software engineering, product management, and design.
Co-founded by John McElhone and Micheál McLaughlin, CropSafe allows farmers to create alerts and enable real-time modules from their marketplace to monitor the condition, health, and weather on their farm, which is monitored remotely through its network of global weather stations and orbital satellites.
The company has opened U.S. headquarters in Los Angeles.
