From the Semios Team:
“Semios is looking forward to hosting you at our new Vancouver HQ!
While there's still work to be done to complete our new space, we're excited to give you an early sneak peek at our work in progress.”


We help growers leverage technology to produce more food more sustainably, and have found great success building our team and developing new technologies in the Metro Vancouver region. I believe there is a great opportunity in this region for new firms to establish themselves and contribute technology-based solutions to the challenges facing the agriculture industry. However, there are barriers that must be addressed before this industry can truly take root.

New Report: Agritech Today, Building for Tomorrow

Invest Vancouver's report, Agritech Today, Building for Tomorrow: Findings and Actions to Strengthen the Sector in the Metro Vancouver Region, identifies advantages within the region's agritech sector that support its continued growth and potential global impact through exporting products and solutions. Creating an environment where we can build on these strengths and scale-up successfully will benefit the region by attracting investment and growing early-stage firms into profitable companies that export globally and reinvest within the region.
