EOS Data Analytics enters into a strategic partnership with TelOne
EOS Data Analytics (EOSDA), a global provider of AI-powered satellite imagery analytics, and Zimbabwe-based TelOne Pvt (Limited) have announced a strategic partnership.
Since 85% of Zimbabwe’s land is used for agriculture, farming activities in the country provide employment and income for two-thirds of the population and contribute approximately 17% to Zimbabwe’s GDP. Still, the number of people with insufficient food consumption has grown by 0.5 million during 2022 alone. Hence empowering agribusinesses with the latest technologies is crucial to the country’s development and its people’s well-being.
TelOne is a government-owned company providing communications and digital solutions for customers in Zimbabwe. It aims to facilitate a digitally enabled society in the country in all sectors of its economy, including agriculture.
Partnering with EOSDA will allow TelOne to establish itself in the smart agriculture sector and assist Zimbabwe’s government, farmers, financial institutions, and other players in the agriculture value chain to create value for communities and the country’s economy.
Humanity’s going through rapid changes that require us to make quick digital transformations. Since Africa is set to become a global hub for agritech, new developments in the African agricultural sector and in Zimbabwe specifically can bring multiple benefits to the industry’s stakeholders and uplift the smallholder farmer communities. That’s why we’re so excited about this strategic partnership with TelOne.
