Founders: Ian Seiferling, Moe Vazifeh, and Julian Ortiz

About: Adaviv creates AI-driven tools that detect plant stress, disease, and vigor, so indoor farmers can improve the cultivation, growth, and yield of their crops.

Why we invested: Supporting companies using technology to transform longstanding industries, such as agriculture, is a key part of our investment thesis. The indoor agriculture industry is growing rapidly around the world. We were drawn to the team’s extensive grounding in MIT’s Senseable City Lab and its complementary nature: CEO Ian focuses on plants and sensing, CTO Moe is an exceptional technologist, and Julian brings both family farming and operational experience.
