#3 - Jim McDougall: Machine Learning Drone Systems Improving Profitability for Fruit Growers
In today's episode, we're speaking with Jim McDougall, Co-Founder and Commercial Director at Outfield.
Outfield enables growers to rapidly image fruit crops with self-flying drones, then receive yield forecasts and productivity maps from a cloud-based machine learning system.
Jim, along with his co-founder Oli, founded Outfield to make the global fruit industry more productive, more profitable, and more sustainable.
Jim is Outfield’s Commercial Director and sales lead, engaging with companies and organisations across the fruit and agritech sectors. Before Outfield, Jim worked as a risk consultant advising private equity firms on mergers and acquisitions, with a focus on environmental and social governance.
Outfield are based in Cambridge, UK and are currently focussed on raising their seed funding round. Enjoy the conversation between Rob and Jim!
