About Ignitia AB
Ignitia AB has developed a highly accurate weather model to help small-scale farmers in West Africa manage their daily activities to predict water availability and improve their yields to optimize food production.
Working in partnership with major telecom, Ignitia is a high-technology company and social enterprise that has recently developed the world’s first highly accurate tropical weather forecast model. We benefit small-scale farmers in West Africa by sending a daily forecast via SMS, provided in partnership with major telecommunication firms.
We started in 2010 as a new research team in physics and meteorology, gathered from different renowned universities and research institutions, such as NASA. We set out to tackle the difficult problem of accurately predicting weather in the tropics.
For the first time, rural small-scale farmers in West Africa were the first clients of a major technology innovation. We like that … and we’re just getting started!
