Blue White Robotics, a platform that provides Robots-as-a-Service (RaaS) for farms to run themselves autonomously, announced $37M in Series B funding. They will use this new funding to increase the rapid adoption of autonomous farming, drive new US sales, and attract talent for their international team.
Blue White Robotics works on farming operations year-round from sprays and harvesting to disking and seeding. By retrofitting existing infrastructure with intelligent autonomous algorithms, the robot tractors improve farm productivity, precision, and worker safety. Additionally, the Blue White Robotics platform collects and distributes data that creates new services.
“With this new round of investment by some truly world-changing leaders, we have the power to continue our vision for a safer, smarter, and productive autonomous farm for the 21st-century,” explains Ben Alfi, co-founder and CEO of Blue White Robotics. “Our amazing team is excited by this renewed commitment to solve the many issues facing our modern farmer and the food system as a whole.
“Farming is an industry that has seen little progress since the advent of the tractor, and it’s time for farmers to enjoy the same advancements in technology as others. Blue White Robotics’ value proposition is unparalleled in agriculture technology, and they truly stand by the need for Autonomy, Now,” said Daniel Aronovitz, Vice President at Insight Partners. “The company’s ease of adoption will allow the product to quickly scale within the industry and enter new markets. We’re excited to partner with Blue White Robotics as they grow. ”
“At Entrée we have a tagline, ‘Partnering with the exceptional to build the impossible’,” explains Avi Eyal, Managing Partner of Entrée Capital. “The exceptional competence of the Blue White Robotics team with their Robot as a Service (RaaS) has made the disruption of the agricultural industry now possible. We’ve backed Blue White Robotics from the start and are proud to continue backing them now.”
