Ignitia’s inclusive business is an excellent example of leveraging low-cost, easily accessible technologies to reduce poverty and hunger, and deliver on the 2030 Development Agenda
Ignitia is a high-technology company and social enterprise that has recently developed the world’s first accurate tropical weather forecast model. Our platform is aimed to benefit small-scale farmers in West Africa by sending a daily forecast via SMS, provided in partnership with major telecommunication firms.
We started in 2010 as a new research team gathered from different renowned universities and research institutions such as NASA. Using an approach that combines proprie¬tary algorithms, uninterrupted 3-D multisource data and predic¬tive artificial intelligence, our team of meteorologists, physicists and mathematicians spent four years developing a technology for superior convective weather prediction.
