Koubachi AG is a Spin-Off from ETH (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich) and has earned itself a reputation as pioneering IoT (Internet of Things) start-up. Koubachi's products include its Wi-Fi plant sensor, cloud-based plant care engine, and smart-phone interface for advising on plant care. Furthermore, Koubachi has developed cloud server products capable of processing high volume sensor data. This technology has also been licensed to well-known manufacturers worldwide on a project basis.
The leading manufacturer of high-quality sensors and sensor solutions worldwide, Sensirion, has entered into an agreement with Koubachi to license its cloud technology. Sensirion, also a first mover in integrating high-quality sensors into smartphones, concluded this deal in order to meet the increasing software and data management requirements in the industry. All strategic technology is and remains ownership of Koubachi. “We are very pleased with this agreement which allows us to further focus on strategically growing our business in the IoT economy of the smart home and garden.", says Dr. Philipp Bolliger, CEO, inventor of the Wi-Fi plant sensor and co-founder of Koubachi AG.
Koubachi has pioneered wireless plant sensors and is already a global leader of smart plant care solutions. Leveraging its achievements and expanding its product offerings, Koubachi is currently offering a Series B funding opportunity to selected investors. As previously announced, Koubachi is working on bringing state-of-the-art technology to all gardening needs including automated irrigation. Philipp Bolliger: “There are 146m gardens in Europe alone, and we are striving to address so far unmet user needs and a growing market with new disruptive technology".
