Brazilian startup Adroit Robotics has raised 2.25 million reals ($427,000) in seed funding. The capital has come in from several new private investors, including Pericles Pereira, Antonio Meireles, Marcelo Fragnan and Marcelo Olivan. Adroit Robotics previously raised funding from Felipe Cabalero and the Maeda family, a well-known farming family in Brazil.
CEO Angelo Gurzoni has stated that the funds will be used to scale up, expanding the amount of farmland monitored by the startup’s AI-enabled sensors. It will also use some of the capital to commence R&D around the use of its Leafsense technology for new crops.
Agfundernews.com reports that Adriot Robotics is already working on obtaining additional funding from Brazilian and foreign VC funds and family offices.
