Drone, sensor, and software company SeeTree launched today and announced the close of a $15 million Series A led by Hanaco Ventures with participation from existing investors Canann Partners Israel and Waze app founder Uri Levine. Other investors participated in the round including international multi-sector VC firm Mindset and iAngel. The funding follows a $3.2 million seed round in September 2017.
Until now, the Tel Aviv-based startup has been operating in stealth mode, honing its technology and accelerating adoption of its service with a clandestine list of growers including large-scale citrus growers in California’s orchard heartland. The new round of funding will be used to further the development of its technology for citrus orchards. Eventually, it plans to expand to other types of crops like nut varieties and to open more offices beyond its existing locations in California and Brazil.
