S4 is an award winning Ag tech start-up that provides the Data that your company’s Decision-Making Process needs
Over the last few years, S4 (formerly, Solapa4) has been one of the fastest growing “AG-Tech” start-ups in Argentina, a country in which agriculture plays a critical economic role. Ag tech companies (like S4) focus on developing data analytics to decision-making tools that can both improve agricultural yield and manage risk.
According to Techcrunch, “Agtech is the new queen of green”. With the global population expected to increase from 7.2B to 9.6B over the next 35 years, food supply will have to increase by 70% to adequately feed the population. Ensuring such a huge increase in global food demand, will require the use of ag-tech. S4 will make a valuable contribution to this effort as a regional actor with strong global ties to international companies. Including in the USA.
S4 was formed in 2010 with its headquarters in Buenos Aires, Argentina. S4 began by advising top agronomists in Argentina, like Cesar Belloso and Santiago González Venzano, who realized that the digitization of farming practices is vital to the future of farming. These visionaries formed a consultancy dedicated to helping farmers in Argentina adopt technology to improve their yields and become more efficient.
Since then, S4 has evolved in two main ways. Firstly, the company has changed from being a consulting business for companies and agronomists to becoming a company exclusively focussed on ag-tech with a B2B2C model. This means that S4 sells its data analytics to financial services providers, ag suppliers, large food suppliers and other agribusinesses. Our services enable other companies to take advantage of more timely and detailed information in order to more accurately allocate their resources and build a smarter shared-risk approach.
Secondly, S4 has expanded geographically. Because of the type and quality of services it provides, S4 has changed from being a domestic to a regional player. Now it is taking its first steps in the global market with the help of ‘The Yield Lab’, an ag-tech startup incubator in St. Louis, MO, USA. With its entrance into the United States, S4 has started to look into international investors.
S4 has a solid and sophisticated team that has attracted an equally solid and sophisticated pool of investors which includes the top Ag experts in Argentina including Cesar Belloso, Ignacio Lartirigoyen, Luis Kasdorf, Francisco Perkins and Delfin Uranga.
