G4AW Project Evolves Into a Spin-Off Social Enterprise

In 2016, SMARTseeds started off as a development project funded by the Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW) facility of the Netherlands Space Office. Now, as per the 1st January 2021, SMARTseeds has evolved into a spin-off social enterprise named SIPINDO. A mutual agreement between shareholders was virtually signed in December 2020 and officially marked the kick-off of the SIPINDO social enterprise.

G4AW Project Evolves Into a Spin-Off Social Enterprise

As an agri-tech social enterprise, SIPINDO focuses on providing reliable digital information services for smallholder vegetable farmers in Indonesia to increase their productivity and efficiency of resource usage, as well as to support farmers with adapting to climate change. Utilizing geodata, the SIPINDO powered by SMARTseeds mobile app gives farmers access to location-specific information about soil management, and weather and climate forecasts. The mobile app also offers tools for farmers to access online vegetable marketing channels and one-on-one online consultations with agri-experts.

 We are thrilled to see what’s waiting in store for the social enterprise and we invite you to join them on their exciting journey ahead!
