Tech Startup Recruiting

Farming Data is a tech startup co-founded by the Churchill Alumni Dr Jacqui Poon.

About the social enterprise:

Farming Data ( is an early-stage startup with a social mission of improving market access for smallholder farmers and buyers across sub-Saharan Africa. Smallholder farmers manage small plots of land and rely on their agricultural surplus to feed and support their families. But, markets don’t favour smallholder farmers and often restrict their access. To solve this issue, we are developing a suite of digital marketplace and logistical tools that connect smallholder farmers with better markets using real-time, location-specific data. Our next step is preparing to pilot our platform in Tanzania.
