General FAQs

What exactly are you building? +

We are building a weather index product that protects you against poor weather based on where you farm, what you grow or raise, and when you plant. It acts like insurance against bad weather, to help you maintain a certain level of income.

In addition to expanding the coverage of insurance, our model follows an automatic payout scheme. To learn more about this, please click here
