Leading and promising

To make the broad concept of horticultural technology easier to grasp, the TECH50 research team made a division into 10 domains. For each domain, five Dutch companies were ranked with a star rating. The assessment was based on the careful comparison of a number of business factors, such as growth potential, innovative and/or disruptive technology, tech as a revenue model and substantial R&D investments. In addition, the opinion of the peer group of experts from the sector and the insight of the creators themselves were taken into account. More than 280 companies were investigated: established businesses, scale-ups and start-ups.

Software solution for the industry

It is noteworthy that Mprise Agriware is among the top 5 software platform suppliers and that Mprise Agriware is the only company therein with an integrated ERP software solution for the sector.
