Anu Meena
Founder at AGROWAVE

With an aim to provide the best price to farmers by eliminating middlemen, Anu Meena, an IIT-D alumnus started AgroWave around an year ago. The idea behind this venture is to optimise agriculture supply chain using research, analytics, and technology.The startup procures fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers and distributes them directly to businesses. For this, it uses analytics to match demand and supply, by predicting the demand using previous data (volume, products, frequency, etc).While farm-to-table businesses that intend to give value to both consumers and farmers have been mushrooming across Indian metros, they haven’t managed to scale and make a significant dent in the current procurement system. AgroWave is differentiating itself by targeting businesses and operating as a farm-to-business player. SW Varanasi is more than pleased to host someone who is revolutionizing agriculture and bringing a change to farmers' lives!
