Startup Collaborator participants announced

The Startup Collaborator provides flexibility for Deere and startups to test innovative technologies with customers and dealers.

The companies that will be part of the Deere & Company 2020 cohort of the Startup Collaborator program have been announced. This program launched last year to enhance collaborative relationships with startup companies whose technology could add value for John Deere customers.

The four leading startups: 

  1. DataFarm – A Brazilian company building digital tools to recommend climate-smart agricultural practices.
  2. FaunaPhotonics – A company from Denmark building technology for real-time pest detection.
  3. Fieldin – An Israeli company working on data management tools for specialty crops.
  4. EarthSense – A company from Champaign, IL, building novel sensing methods to improve in-field data collection.

“The first year of the John Deere Startup Collaborator program showed us and the startups involved the tremendous mutual value of working closely together,” said Julian Sanchez, director of strategy and business development at Deere’s Intelligent Solutions Group. “We’re excited to continue building on the program’s success.”

The Startup Collaborator provides flexibility for Deere and startups to test innovative technologies with customers and dealers without a more formal business relationship.
