Farmeron's new owner, Virtus Nutrition has decided to move its personnel to the United States, country of their primary market, thus closing the Croatian office of one of the first prominent Croatian startups. What will happen to Farmeron's team, what the founder Matija Kopić intends to do and what all this means for Croatian startup scene, analysis.
Farmeron, a fresh internet startup from Osijek, Croatia just raised an investment and support from Dave McClure's seed fund and startup aggregator 500 Startups. Matija Kopić, CEO of Farmeron confirmed, exclusively for Netocratic, that Farmeron team will move to Mountain View in Silicon Valley in the next ten days or so.
500 Startups is one of most powerful US startup accelelators run by Dave McClure, former CMO in PayPal. Altought Kopić couldn't confirm how big the investment is, it is known that 500 Startups' first rounds of investment start at 100 thousands dollars, and most of the time it's somewhere around 400-700 thousands dollars or even a million.
Osijek-based Farmeron is one of the 20 startups participating in Mini Seedcamp London this week and the only one chosen among the startups present from Mini Seedcamp Ljubljana, both organized by the startup aggregator Seedcamp. They're building a web-based farm management and analytics application that should allow farmers to analyze their farm's performance and lower costs.
Kopic also sent me the screenshot you can see which illustrates how Farmeron's new interface will look like.
