ONDO grabs the Runner-up award in the EBRD AgVenture start-up competition!

We are proud to announce the great news that came from European Bank for Reconstruction and Development /EBRD/! ONDO has grabbed the second place in the popular EBRD AgVenture startup competition, among hundreds of competing AgriTech companies worldwide! Yay!

EBRD AgVenture is a competition supporting innovative early-stage agribusiness technology ventures that address one of three key themes: food, production and efficiency, greening the agri-sector and improving value chain inclusion. The winners were selected based on a variety of criteria, including the relevance of the problem the companies are trying to solve; the product/service differentiation; their go-to market strategy; progress and traction; the experience of the team, and financing.

This award is a huge recognition of our efforts to increase the sustainability of the agricultural sector by making the automation of irrigation, precise fertigation and climate control accessible to every farmer! It is also a recognition of the role of ONDO in a global worldwide effort to resolve the major problems faced by food systems today including but not limited to food security, rising input costs, intensified climate change, and fair inclusion of minorities and small businesses in global value chains.

As a runner up, ONDO will receive support and assistance from EBRD AgVenture to enhance its competitiveness and growth. We get tailored advisory service through the dedicated EBRD Star Venture experience to a value of EUR 50,000 which includes:

  • A systematic business diagnostics workshop
  • Customised consulting support
  • Online/in-person mentoring sessions
  • Access to finance/market
  • Visibility at global forums
  • Links to EBRD and other networks

as well as a 10,000 EUR grant for additional services!

Thanks to all judges who saw the value ONDO is creating. Thanks to our customers for the huge trust and support we get, every single day. And thanks to our team who keeps improving the ONDO solutions, with so much passion and hard work!
