Herdwatch, our mobile App for farmers, has won the first ever AIB Startup Academy. We are absolutely delighted and grateful to AIB, The Irish Times and all partners of this wonderful competition with a prize package worth €250,000!
The competition was very tough with 300 applicants, reduced to 20, then 11 for the 8-week long Academy programme. All 11 finalists presented high quality and passionate pitches for the final, and Herdwatch came out on top and is flying the flag high for Irish Agri Technology!
The hard work of the dedicated FRS Herdwatch team has paid off and we are looking ahead to a very busy time.
Thank you to the hundreds of farmers who have already signed up to Herdwatch.
