Redefining crop scouting
WHO WE ARE
Gbot was born as a project of Mapplics, a software development company established in 2008 by Juan Mandolesi and Sergio Gregori. In 2018 Javier Epeloa joined the team to enhance the brand new innovation area of the company. This area was focused on new technologies and agriculture.
In Mapplics R&D department various projects started to be addressed. The target? Solving critical issues in the field of agriculture. Some of the prioritized areas of work were the prediction of frosts through intelligent systems and weed control with alternative approaches that did not include the use of herbicide.
The accomplished technological advances, all the hard work and this amazing team got attention from one of the most important deeptech funds in Argentina. And so, in 2019, Mapplics little spin-off, Gbot Solutions, was awarded with an investment from the CITES fund; managed by the centre with the same name. This is how Gbot started its path as a company and its incubation process in the aforementioned company builder.
