History

Deepak Pareek, a serial Technopreneur since 20 years wanted to get into a new venture focused on creating a Social Impact. Through a family friend, he came to identify the sector which happens to be Agriculture. As a Technopreneur, before creating any solution in AgTech domain, he planned his visits in 10 different countries in South Asia and met more than 1000 farmers by staying with them. After which he realized that as a Data Scientist the solution lies within a platform which provides data insights to every stakeholder of Agriculture Ecosystem. So, idea was initiated in mid-2016 and launched in Indonesia & India in 2017. World Economic Forum recognized him as Technology Pioneer 2018. As it was focused towards crop specification only, the focus now shifted towards use of cutting edge digital technologies. Sanket by bringing technology expertise and Nabil by bringing global perspective, joined him as partners to create an evolved version as a global product and they co-founded together Digi Agri commercialized in May 2019.
