It’s been an exciting past year for the team with a few key highlights springing to mind. Deploying Halter technology on our pilot farm and getting it operational was certainly a highlight, along with working through production in Shenzhen and the countless insightful conversations we’ve had with NZ farmers over the last year or so. Our biggest highlight to date however would have to be growing the Halter team to sit at now 38 talented people and seeing everyone work together so incredibly.
We’ve raised several rounds of capital, the first round was from NZ investors including The Icehouse’s Tuhua Ventures and Peter Beck. All subsequent rounds have been led by US investors including DCVC, Promus Ventures and Founders Fund, with our NZ investors continuing to support us.
The biggest challenge we have faced has been finding great people to add to the team – we have a number of roles that have taken longer to fill and some we are still looking for. Finding the combination of skillset, experience and domain expertise has proven to be challenging.
