Innovation Award

Whipcord

At Whipcord, we’re empowered by a small team of passionate people who share a positive outlook and a moral obligation to our neighbours, to make life easier and more profitable. We’re entrepreneurs, rocket scientists, programmers, farmers, data scientists and dealmakers whose mission is to fundamentally reshape how we produce food by using technology, data and artificial intelligence to drive profitability and sustainability in agriculture.

For nearly two decades Whipcord has been a Canadian success story, becoming an industry leader in data services with operations across Canada. From managing over 1TB of data weekly from the third largest provider of optical Earth observation satellite imagery in the world to reducing field costs by 5-7% over 3 million cumulative acres with First Pass, Whipcord continues to strive to provide our customers with what they need, when they need it.

Whipcord is a good candidate for this award because we see the passion people have for their business, and it excites us to help others take it to the next level. Whether it’s First Pass for our agriculture customers or Cloud Solutions for our enterprise customers, we believe in simple solutions that help our neighbours produce more.
