ApisProtect is highlighted as a leading solution “in an exciting field” by Sifted, January 2021. Europe’s startup scene is often overshadowed by Silicon Valley, but the continent is gaining ground with more than 60 tech startups valued at over $1bn. Sifted’s reporters dig into the data, strategy and challenges behind the most important European startups and scaleups. We ask which companies are making waves and which are the ones to watch in 2021. See the full list here. 

ApisProtect may not be the biggest Irish startups, but it’s in an exciting field (much beloved by Sifted) of bee-tech. Founded in 2017, ApisProtect develops internet-connected beehive sensors and has raised more money than any bee-tech business in the world.

Watch this short video to learn more about how ApisProtect uses remote sensors to help beekeepers monitor their colonies remotely.

“Our machine learning turns data into useful information,” Fiona Murphy told Sifted last year. “We can show beekeepers which colonies are alive or dead, which are performing well or not, so they can decide if they need to feed them, apply insecticide or add some extra insulation on the hives.”
