We developed the Worlds' First Tropical Weather Forecasting Model

Ignitia began as a research project to understand the differences in tropical weather events and create a model to more accurately predict them. With an accuracy of 84%, our forecasts are more than twice as accurate as global producers.

 

Since 2015, we have worked closely with small-scale farmers to provide them with reliable forecasts to reduce risk and loss.

 

With the ability to scale quickly, we can work with industries across the globe that are affected by weather variability in the tropics.

Our History

Our team of scientists moved to Ghana to develop  our proprietary tropical forecast model and an SMS-based forecast product - Iska

2010 - 2012

Ignitia launches alpha version in Ghana.  Farmers can now receive daily, monthly and seasonal forecasts via SMS.

In 2017, Ignitia's subscriber base grows to 330,000.

2017
