Started in 2017 and based in Paris (Station f), Casablanca and Dakar, SOWIT is providing decision support tools to African farmers to help them optimize their most critical operations. Farmers wonder everyday if they really need to fertilize, irrigate or if it is the right time to harvest. Thanks to its drone remote-sensing, statistics and agronomic technologies, SOWIT provides them with the right information at the right moment to decide and drive efficiently their operations.
Africa is the last growth frontier for the world food production as it holds almost 60% of arable available land while showing the lower yields worldwide. To meet the world (and especially African) demand, African farmers would need to increase their production by 70% by 2050 in a complex context of global warming. At SOWIT, we believe data-driven decision are a key component to drive the African green revolution in a sustainable and profitable way for African farmers and the World.
SOWIT is looking for a “bras-droit” which will basically work across all the business spectrum with a strong focus on operations to help satisfying SOWIT customers and driving its product development.
