Home Cannabis Farming Startup Seedo Qualifies as U.N. Registered Vendor
Haifa-headquartered Seedo develops an automated device approximately the size of a mini-fridge used to grow cannabis at home under controlled conditions
Home cannabis farming startup Seedo (incorporated as Eroll Grow-Tech Ltd.) announced last week that it was accepted as a registered vendor for the United Nations Global Marketplace (UNGM). Most U.N. organizations require companies to be a registered UNGM vendor in order to do business with them. By becoming a registered vendor, the company now has access to tender contracts from more than 35 different U.N. organizations.
Founded in 2013, Haifa-headquartered Seedo develops an automated device approximately the size of a mini-fridge used for home cannabis farming under controlled conditions. The device uses computer vision to analyze the state of the crops and determine their needs.
Daniel Birnbaum, the CEO of Israeli PepsiCo-owned at-home water carbonation products company SodaStream International Ltd. led a $4 million investment round in the company earlier this year.
