BeeHero utilizes low-cost IoT sensors to effectively measure and manage bee pollination activity and strength.

In 2023, BeeHero managed over 200K hives, with its sensors collecting over 10M hive samples daily. The company was also recognized by CNBC on its 2023 Disruptor 50 list and released its Pollination Insight Platform in-field sensing solution to measure pollinator activity and improve yields in seed, row, and specialty crops.
“The fusion of building a genuine business, gaining significant traction, and making a positive impact is what fuels the enthusiasm of the BeeHero team,” said Omer Davidi, CEO and Co-Founder of BeeHero. “By providing unprecedented, data-based transparency into the process of pollination, we’re helping to advance sustainable agriculture and safeguard the future of global food security.
