We are a young company focused on Agtech. We seek to look, analyze, and do things differently, innovating on what has already been done because we understand that tomorrow will require new skills to meet new challenges; and that is why we work respecting those values in which we really believe:
Eiwa’s co-founders Nicolas Otamendi and Marcelo Gowland have known each other since kindergarten. Based on the long-term friendship and having worked in different capacities in their respective family businesses, came the idea of becoming business partners and build a business that would have global positive impact harnessed by the implementation of digital technologies.
Despite having a family history of working in agriculture from previous generations, the two took a strategic approach to which industries would be better suited and get the most out of the digitization of their processes. The top three industries analyzed were Healthcare, Energy and Agriculture.
The decision was made to focus on Agriculture based on the impact digitization could have at a local and global level.
So, in 2014, Eiwa starts with Nico and Marcelo traveling across the various agricultural regions of Argentina, to have a better understanding of the challenges the industry faced. By interacting with farmers, input providers, retailers and others it became clear that the early stages of the value chain (Research & Development) was the place to start.
Eiwa has since developed a platform and algorithms to improve data acquisition, data analytics and data visualization for seed breeders, reaching in a short period of time the impressive mark of managing over 70% of all soybean breeding plots in the 3 main geographies, Argentina, Brazil, and the USA.
The most recent development that aims to expand the impact Eiwa can provide to Agricultural Innovators across Breeding, Crop Protection, Crop Nutrition, Marketing, and Sales teams, is Eiwa Vault that launches on November 15th, 2021.
Nicolas and Marcelo continue to serve as CEO and CFO respectively, leading a team of industry experts, engineers, developers and expanded management, supporting the growing number of customers its serving across North America and Latin America.
