2020 Project: Harvest Hawk
"The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams"
- Eleanor Roosevelt
Hello, GoGetFunders (:
Harvest Hawk Technologies (PTY)LTD will specialize in the Agricultural industry, focused on delivering actionable insights for the men and women who feed our nation, helping them to better understand their harvests and ensure the best decisions can be made to maximize their inputs. Granting access to a "hidden" world through industry-leading technology, accompanied by simple, yet powerful analytics with the help of professional software. Drones are the wings of our company, making all of this possible by being our "Hawk" in the sky.
Growing up on a small farm in the Northern Cape, our love and passion for Agriculture cultivated at an early stage. Coupling this with Technology ( and it doesn't get much cooler than drones ), this is a dream come true. Discovering the technologies available to enhance the harvesting process inspired action to want to share this knowledge and support local farmers who might never have had access to this opportunity. With a growing population and Africa being the hot-spot for agriculture, the need for more efficient farming has never been greater. Together with un-measurable knowledge from skilled farmers, we're aiming to revolutionize agriculture in SA, one flight at a time.
- Introduce world-class technology to home soil
- Provide practical and useful insights to our customers
- Support local organizations in the farming community
- Employ local workers
- Lessen the technology gap between big and small scale farming
To achieve all of our goals, we need money.
Together with capital investment from our side, this would enable us to purchase the drone, sensor, software as well as processing equipment.
Why open a Business in 2020?
Nothing is certain and our economy needs entrepreneurs and dreamers now more than ever before.
This is our dream and we need your help to make it come true.
The service we will provide will include the following:
- Full flight mapping of the identified crop area
- We will come to your farm
- Real-time view of your crops ( depending on the sensor )
- Per-hectare billing rate
- Complete Analysis of crop health ( this can include underground water levels, yield-prediction, plant stress, damage repost, nutrient needs, plant count )
Please note that this is only an indication, and the final services will be determined by the amount we raise as this will influence the sensor we can afford to buy.
Being a business, Harvest Hawk will comply with the rules and regulations of SACAA and start the process (ROC) of getting a Drone Operators Certificate to use our drones commercially.
