My name is Kam and when I was five years old, I wanted to be an astronaut. By the time I was six years old, I realized I had a better chance of designing spaceships than actually flying them. So, I decided to become an aerospace engineer. One of my deep, dark secrets is that I grew up in Hamilton, Ontario (that’s me standing in front of the first Tim Hortons in Hamilton). It wasn’t until I moved to Toronto that I was able to realize my educational ambitions.
The first product we’re offering to farmers is what we consider the next most natural and logical step to creating value on the farm: First Pass Route Optimization. With First Pass we’re able to offer growers the opportunity to reduce their in-field miles and costs by over 5%, which results in a reduction in fuel, equipment and labor expenses. First Pass is a product that solves a universal need in every field.

No industry is more durable or has more permanence than agriculture and at Whipcord we understand the substantial value technology delivers. For those reasons, we intend to build our agriculture products with growers at the center, as we acknowledge their importance as stewards of the land.
Well first off, the Internet of Things is a buzzword. And like many technical buzzwords, the underlying concept that it purports to describe existed long before the media-friendly “IoT” moniker came into existence.
Agriculture is among the oldest and most important industries in the world, serving the population globally by providing a basic necessity: food.
Chris here – I was born and raised in Calgary, living there until I left to attend the University of Lethbridge, where I’m currently completing my Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science.
