“We’re honored to be named as one of the top 100 AI companies by CB Insights for our work in making agriculture more intelligent,” said Daniel Koppel, CEO and co-founder of Prospera. “Agriculture is ripe for a healthy injection of AI, and Prospera’s technology is providing growers worldwide with field analytics that predict and improve performance in a completely transformative way.”

Companies such as Affectiva, Blue River Technology, Deep Instinct, Sentient Technologies and Orbital Insight joined Prospera in being recognized for their amazing teams, technology, and traction in front of an audience of 400 senior executives from around the world.
