Aakash Shah, Co-Founder, PGP Class of 2006 | KisaanGo
Location: India
Stage of venture: Early Stage
Years in business: <1

KisaanGo is an omni channel farmer centric solution that aspires to revolutionize the Indian farming landscape. The Indian farmer does not have access to valid information on proper scientific farming and they often fall prey to spurious, sub standard and duplicate agriculture inputs. The collection of inputs for his farming activity needs him to travel multiple times to various stores and he ends up dissipating his time and money in buying unrelated products which largely results in suboptimal farm productivity and yield. KisaanGo solves the problem by offering chain of well planned stores placed on strategic locations and offering a mix of methodically selected trusted agri-input brands along with vital support services such as soil testing, agri-advisory, rental of farm machinery and financing. KisaanGo has piloted from West Bengal and we intend to be pan India in the next 36 months.
