MISSION

To reinvent the agricultural system by building self-sustainable and efficient infrastructure for a zero waste future.

 
 

Approach

 

LOCAL

Growing locally not only reconnects humans with nature, but it is also the best way to ensure high quality and low-impact food. Space in cities is limited and expensive so we need to take advantage of what is available — help Íko put a micro-greenhouse in every home.

DATA-DRIVEN

Data-driven agriculture in the hands of both consumers and farmers will allow us to produce enough food to support the world’s growing population. Íko’s patent-pending technology is able to capture agricultural biodata at a large scale. By joining Íko, you can help farmers grow more efficiently with the biodata that you create while growing your own sustainably organic food.
