Tackling issues of poor connectivity, a lack of digital literacy, and a lack of trust, AgUnity has developed a smartphone and super app solution for the world’s farming and fishing communities, restoring trust, enabling cooperation and financial inclusion.
We provide an end-to-end solution for Service Providers (banking, insurance, micro-finance institutions, commodity buyers/sellers, NGOs, and SDG programs) to enable access to remote markets and make life-enhancing services available to smallholder farmers.
More than 1 billion people around the world have no proof of identity, and more than 2 billion do not have a bank account. AgUnity provides these people with a unique smartphone and super app, specially designed to connect them with:
• Banking and micro-finance companies to get access to finance and save their money;
• Insurance providers that can help them deal with the challenges of climate instability;
• Commodity buyers and traders so that they can sell their crops at better rates and learn how to optimize production;
• Aid organizations and NGOs that can help them with access to education and other services.
The AgUnity solution solves systemic problems around security, connectivity, identification, support, and usability.

What is equity crowdfunding?
Equity crowdfunding became accessible to all Australian's over the age of 18 in January 2018. It's a new way to invest that enables broad groups of investors (‘the crowd’) to fund early stage companies in return for equity. It helps these companies access the capital they require and gives investors a chance to invest in businesses they are passionate about. Retail investors can invest up to $10,000. Sophisticated investors are unlimited in their investment.
