Seasony raises €1.5 million in latest funding round

December 12, 2023

Seasony, a company specializing in mobile robotics for vertical farming, announced the successful closing of its latest funding round, securing €1.5 million in investment from a group of high-profile investors.

This will propel Seasony forward in its mission to make indoor farming more scalable, profitable, and sustainable through mobile robotics technology. The funds allow Seasony to accelerate its product development and expand towards key markets in the Middle East and North America.

The core of Seasony is to bring the best of mobile robotics automation into indoor farming. Using mobile robots, growers are offered a flexible and cost-effective automated solution as an alternative to both scissor lifts as well as static elevators and conveyor belts.

“We aspire for Watney to be the John Deere of indoor farming. Watney handles both heavy and dangerous lifting while analyzing each plant down to the smallest detail – with a memory that enables vertical farms to significantly streamline operations and get more output from every square metre,” says Christopher Weis Thomasen, co-founder and CEO of Seasony.

Watney can work around the clock, from the moment the seeds are sown to when the plants are harvested. When Watney moves around in a vertical farm, it takes care of tasks such as moving plant trays up and down from 10-metre-high shelves and transporting them to different stations. All while constantly analyzing, reporting, and storing data about the characteristics of each individual plant and the environment in which they grow.

A combination of advanced sensors, robotics and algorithms from Seasony allows for intervention at a much earlier stage in the vertical farming process. If a plant needs more water, nutrients, light or CO2, then the systems will be able to provide this information. This creates the best conditions for the vertical farm to achieve maximum yield.

The round was led by North Ventures and EFIO (Export and Investment Fund of Denmark). Alongside them several prominent and experienced business angels invested including Vagn Ove Soerensen, Torben Wind, Klaus Holse, Barbara Taudorf Andersen, Nicolaj Reffstrup (Look Up Ventures) and many more.
