HiveTracks Get Pollinated with New Funding

An emerging startup focused on improving health outcomes for honeybees, HiveTracks, has raised nearly $170,000 in 2021 thus far and plans to raise more ahead of a key product launch slotted for June.

Founder James Wilkes is using computing to drive positive outcomes for honeybees and all the stakeholders who rely on bees as a pollinator for agricultural food systems globally.

The company is already generating revenue, using a Software-as-a-Service model to sell its Beekeeper’s Companion application to individual hobbyist beekeepers on an annual subscription basis. The company also sells multi-user licenses to beekeeping organizations and to non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and government agencies to deliver beekeeping solutions across the globe, particularly in the region known as the “Global South.”  

HiveTracks plans to launch an app next month that helps beekeepers keep healthier bees by leveraging emerging cloud-, app-, and data-supported technologies.
