Early 2020, Tim Kreukniet (CEO) and Mohamed Boussama (CTO), met at Antler. Mohamed comes from a farmers family in Tunisia, where they already faced labor shortages. Tim has worked 10 years in the EV space and wanted to move beyond Co2 reduction into creating healthy ecosystems. On top of that, they were the only two people in the Antler program that were interested in hardware.
After interviewing 100+ farmers, it became clear; farmers need extra hands on the field, especially for weeding. Antler funded the idea and Trabotyx was born
Flash forward to 2023, the team has grown to 8FTE and the first hectares are being weeded and farmers are willing to pay. Now it is time to grow further.
