Impact Terra provides Food & Agriculture Analytics

Even though farming employs over a billion people globally, the industry is largely economically inefficient. The AgriTech sector is ushering in digital innovations to make it more resource-efficient and increase productivity. For example, startups analyze environmental and crop data to provide actionable insights. By optimizing agricultural activity, such solutions create more employment opportunities in the sector and boost local economies.

Dutch startup Impact Terra provides food & agriculture analytics. The startup’s platform helps smallholder farmers grow higher-value crops. It also provides actionable insights, alerts, and local weather information to increase crop productivity. Further, the platform connects farmers to financing opportunities and collective marketing channels, helping them improve their economic conditions.

POKET delivers Crowdsourced Insights

Data is crucial to develop products and services that are customized for local communities. It helps identify issues to focus on, track changes over time, and assess the impact of developmental projects. However, local data often has gaps, particularly when it comes to people from marginalized backgrounds. To this end, startups offer apps and platforms that leverage crowdsourced data to gather local insights.

Canadian startup POKET develops mobile tools for crowdsourcing data. Through self-reported data, citizen-generated data, and participatory mapping, the startup derives location-specific insights. Since the contributors are rewarded only after the verification of data, businesses get the best data returns on their spending. The startup’s solutions provide valuable insights into local communities, especially marginalized people where traditional data might be lacking.

Innoflow enables Anonymized Recruitment

Companies are undertaking inclusive hiring approaches to improve diversity in their workplaces. However, unconscious bias often makes its way in the hiring process, hampering the success of diversity initiatives. To tackle this issue, startups are developing anonymized recruitment solutions. By hiding all identifying information, these solutions enable hiring managers to make more objective decisions.

Innoflow is a Danish startup that provides equal opportunities with anonymized recruitment. The startup’s software solution eliminates the bias from recruitment processes or case competitions. This helps companies find the best talent while also improving their reputation as equal opportunity employers. It saves time and cost during the hiring process, as well as offers a recruitment marketing plan to attract the best talent.

Pezesha builds a Digital Financial Ecosystem

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) generate thousands to millions of jobs annually and push economies forward. However, it is often difficult for small businesses to take loans. Poor credit, low incomes, and the lack of collateral are some of the challenges that prevent SMEs from getting loans. To address these issues, social impact startups are working on digital platforms that bring more small businesses and marginalized communities under the ambit of banking.

Kenyan startup Pezesha develops an ecosystem to enable digital financial inclusion. PataScore, the startup’s solution, provides services for electronic know your customer (e-KYC), financial education, automated credit decisions, and financial statement analysis. Pezesha also offers the platform as a service to help lenders with loan management and credit assessment. By empowering micro, small & medium enterprises (MSMEs), the startup’s solutions promote economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa.
