September 8th was not another day on the field at Tilles Park; Eiwa introduced itself to the St. Louis agtech community and over 70 people that were connected online from other states and countries around the world.
The event started with some opening words from the The Yield Lab representatives and the St. Louis ecosystem who welcomed Eiwa:
“We are delighted that today we can celebrate this next step in Eiwa’s journey”
“One of the things I was excited about, what they were doing, is they can identified key capabilities that were going to bring value to Research & Development organizations”
“These guys did a remarkable job helping us understand the impact that they are poised to make in ag tech, in agriculture generally, showing us the products, showing us the degree of validation and credibility that they’ve been able to garner from the market … I was super impressed and my team was too…”
“This ecosystem means a tremendous amount to me, to us, and I’m super thrilled that you are part of this ecosystem in a formal way”
“We looked at 1100 companies in Latin-america, 300 of them we had calls with, then we selected 40 of them, out of those 40 we cut the pool down to 13 of them and Eiwa is our first graduation … it’s very exciting to bring Eiwa to the US and help them come here”.
“I think it is super important to understand the opportunity that we have here in St. Louis connecting with Latin-america”
“To the team of Eiwa, welcome to St. Louis, we recognize it is hard work bringing company… the risk you have to take and the location decision you make are not easy ones… Thank you for taking that chance in St. Louis”.
“We share a lot of values, we promote teamwork, we value people, we put our customers first, that perfectly encapsulates everything we are trying to build in St. Louis and I’m certain that you and your team are going to not only fit in, but you are going to thrive”.
In addition to the speakers, Marcelo M. Rolandelli COO of Eiwa, Thad Simons Founder of The Yield Lab, Santiago Murtagh Managing Director of The Yield Lab LATAM, and Brandon Day COO of The Yield Lab Institute were present at the event.
Marcelo Gowland, Co-Founder and CFO at Eiwa told us about their mission, their value proposition and how they solve the challenge of digital transformation in agriculture. Finally, he introduced the evolution of their team.
Nicolás Otamendi, Co-Founder and CEO at Eiwa, attended virtually and shared with the audience “seven years ago we saw these huge field trials and knew exactly our entry point. After talking with several leaders of the industry and farmers we felt this was a great opportunity for Eiwa to accelerate and maximize agriculture at a global scale. The key was, and still is, how to use and organize data to develop the industry of the future”.
Their new team member and CBDO, Carlos Hirsch, closed the presentation introducing Eiwa Vault, which is going to be available to the market starting November 15th.
Eiwa Vault, is a cloud enterprise data management platform, specially built for crop science. It also bridges data gaps across the enterprise streamlining research, development, marketing, sales and farming processes.
“Eiwa’s road so far has been successful because it evolved. The team has been listening to the customers and learning from them.”, Hirsch said.
Let’s evolve together.
