India: Farming app lets you grow and harvest your own organic foodShameek Chakravarty (39), Sudaakeran Balasubramanian (37) and Gitanjali Rajamani (36) founded Farmizen, a mobile-based platform that lets you grow and monitor the process of growing food on a real-time basis.
Shameek holds a Bachelorís degree in Computer Science from BITS Pilani and a MBA from Indian School of Business (ISB). A serial entrepreneur, he started and has worked with multiple startups in the past, apart from working with Amazon and Yahoo, building products and businesses in the online advertising space.
Sudaakeran, a Computer engineer from College of Engineering, Guindy is a hands-on technology leader, with past experience building large scale distributed systems at internet majors - Amazon and Yahoo and startups like Asklalia and Lexity.
Gitanjali Rajamani, an alumnus of the ISB-Goldman Sachs Women Entrepreneur programme, is the domain expert on the founding team, having built www.greenmylife.in - an urban gardening company. She has worked in business development at TCS prior to her entrepreneurial plunge, and holds a MBA in International Management.
Colleagues and friends for years, the three began by an experiment to grow their own chemical-free food on a small patch of land for more than a year and saw that it was possible to generate a substantial amount of naturally grown vegetables from a 600 sft patch of land. The desire to expand and provide non-toxic alternatives on a larger scale led to the genesis of Farmizen in June 2017.
While the primary focus of the farmers remains production, Farmizen provides agro inputs, technical know-how, marketing, distribution, regulation, and monitoring facilities.
