Building a resilient food system

AQUAOSO provides location-based intelligence tools to agricultural lenders so they can build deeper relationships with farmers, streamline loan processes, improve risk management functions, and easily report on climate-related risks.

Their platform adds the power of mapping to financial data, layering it with best-in-class third-party data sets including land, field, climate, weather, and more, providing new insights and value at every level of an ag lending organization. With more than 30 customers across 10 states, AQUAOSO helps ag lenders navigate a changing climate to build a successful, sustainable future with farmers.

AQUAOSO’s thesis is that by working with financial institutions, they can make significant progress in underwriting and financing the necessary changes in society to build a resilient food system.

AQUAOSO contributes to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals 2 (Zero Hunger), 6 (Clean water and sanitation) & 11 (Sustainable cities and communities).

AQUAOSO partnered with Enduring Planet to:

  • Finance new operational capabilities to support existing customers

  • Expand their revenue base

Blending RBF with other capital sources

AQUAOSO has worked with other RBF lenders in the past and chose Enduring Planet because of the core value alignment around climate.

They concurrently raised additional capital from current investors under a convertible note, with a significant step up from their last round, to expand their platform into new geographies with additional climate analytic capabilities.

In addition to the benefits of non-dilutive funding that requires no collateral or personal guarantees, AQUAOSO valued the additional operational support provided by the Enduring Planet team including strategic insights, connections to the Enduring Planet network, and more.
