UnBounded by Crossboundary
Fintech for Farmers
How can simplifying the farm funding process drive both profitability and soil health on American farms?
CrossBoundary's Nathan Kelly speaks with Sami Tellatin (@SamiTellatin), co-founder and COO at FarmRaise (@Farm_Raise), a U.S.-based business dedicated to connecting farmers and ranchers to grant and loan opportunities. FarmRaise has just completed a $7.2 million seed round led by Susa Ventures to scale their solution.
In this episode, Nathan and Sami chat about the realities of farming in the U.S. and why sustainable and regenerative practices at the farm level are critical ways U.S. agriculture can simultaneously become more climate-smart and profitable.
