28 Feb Ignitia – World’s first tropical weather forecasting model
Founder: Liisa Smits
Ignitia developed the World’s First Tropical Weather Forecasting Model. It all began as a research project to understand the differences in tropical weather events and create a model to more accurately predict them. With an accuracy of 84%, their forecasts are more than twice as accurate as global producers.
Since 2015, they have worked closely with small-scale farmers to provide them with reliable forecasts to reduce risk and maximise profit and yield.
With the ability to scale quickly, Ignitia can work with industries across the globe that are affected by weather variability in tropical regions.
