Kheyti helps smallholder farmers in India battle income variability with their “Greenhouse-in-a-Box,” a low-cost greenhouse bundled with end-to-end services. They design, adapt, and implement low-cost farming solutions that help smallholder farmers increase yields and incomes.
One of Kheyti’s top priorities going into the project was increasing their frontline staff-to-farmer ratio. Kheyti partnered with Rippleworks to create a three-year product roadmap, helping their team develop and adopt new technologies to serve more farmers.
Kheyti partnered with Michael Starkenberg, a product and technology leader who built teams into world-class organizations at Zocdoc, Image Metrics, TiVo, and elsewhere. Together, they:
• Focused Kheyti’s tech efforts on a handful of initiatives to drive short-term growth and long-term impact
• Gained clarity on Kheyti’s tech and product team needs, what to buy versus build, and their critical upcoming hires
