Au sujet de l’entreprise: 

AGvisorPRO is building a global connectivity channel for agriculture serving all sectors of the industry from broadacre farming to indoor operations, from dairy to aquaculture. AGvisorPRO matches, connects, archives, rates and transacts knowledge sessions between “seekers” and “advisors” to provide answers now! The AGvisorPRO platform creates an agricultural matrix connecting farmers, experts, industry, government, researchers, and even the public, to address constraining issues in agriculture. We can put experts “on the farm” without being “on the farm”. We help monetize the experience and wisdom of independent advisors. We displace 1-800 with a Tech Direct Solution, connecting farmers to industry reps for free using AGvisorPRO. We can help farmers attend auction sales without being at the sale. We are device agnostic, with capability to work over low bandwidth environments.

AGvisorPRO has been scaling quickly during the pandemic, as remote connectivity has become a crucial tool worldwide. We have grown our team from 2 to over 25 people, and increased sales, during the pandemic. Activities range from digital marketing to improving matching algorithms to address current user concerns. As we grow, we require talent that can see beyond traditional marketing strategies in ag.
