Deploying autonomous indoor farms outside every city on earth

Deploying autonomous indoor farms outside every city on earth

We are a collection of engineers and scientists from Oxford, MIT and DeepMind, on a mission to grow safer, healthier food by deploying fully autonomous indoor farms outside every city on earth.

Our team includes a professor of control engineering, a research scientist who helped reduce the cooling bill of a Google data centre by 40%, and a farmer who started as a vegetable picker 40 years ago and now runs one of the most advanced indoor farming operations in the world.

We are backed by world-leading deep technology VC funds, including Founders Fund, who have backed companies such as SpaceX, Palantir and Square from the very start. We are well capitalised for the future having raised one of the largest seed rounds ever in Europe.
