With the end of the year in sight, it’s time to take a look back at what 2016 had to offer. What’s clear is that the startup industry is still flourishing, with many young entrepreneurs that have plenty of innovative, disruptive ideas for the future. The following days we will be looking back at the startups that stood out to us particularly, and ask them about 2016 and their plans for the future. Today: Connecterra.
Cows and machine learning
With a tagline ‘fitbit for cows’, this Amsterdam based startup had our attention right from the early start. Connecterra provides connected activity monitors for dairy farms. It allows farmers to track every single cow at every given moment. Throw some analyses by machine learning and data science in the mix and you get a comprehensive analysis that provides insights on how to keep every cow happy and healthy. This is important for farmers as well; Happy cows perform better, thus making more money for their owner.
