Autonomous Weeding Robots-Competitive Landscape Part 1
Our research revealed that both Blue River Technology and Robovator are headquartered in California, United States while IC Weeer is the City at 't Haringvliet, Netherlands. This information has been entered in the attached spreadsheet. However, after searching extensively through Robovator and IC Weeer official websites, social media pages, competitors insights platforms and private company databases we could not obtain their number of employees, total funding and revenue information.
First, we investigated Robovator and IC Weeder official websites, particularly their "About" pages for details around their number of employees, total funding, and annual revenues. The bulk of their official sites addresses the different weed removal technologies they offer without disclosing a direct answer to the queries raised. We also sought after any social media pages — Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more, the companies operate in order to scan for the information, but found that Robovator does not maintain any social media page while IC Weeder's Facebook and Twitter accounts do not record the number of employees or the other data sets raised.
Next, we combed through different competitors' insight platforms like Crunchbase, ZoomInfo, DB Hoovers, and more, that keep profiles for tech companies, as well as funding and revenue information. Although Robovator and IC Weeder are profiled in some of the databases (CrunchBase and ZoomInfo, respectively), the inquired details to the granularity presented were not available.
As a last resort, we broadened the research criteria to examine private company databases like PitchBook and PrivCo in pursuance of their number of employees, total funding, and annual revenues. PitchBook offers users the ability to view private companies' funding status, overview, revenues, as well as the number of employees. Unfortunately, neither PitchBook nor PrivCo maintains Robovator and IC Weeder profiles in their databases. Therefore, we concluded that the information is broadly unavailable because these are private companies and they are not obligated to disclose their financials to the public.
We have completed the available information on column B - D of the attached spreadsheet.
