Varaha Raises $8.7 Million to Help Smallholders in Asia & Africa Transition to Climate-Friendly Farming Methods

Founders Madhur Jain (CEO), Ankita Garg (COO) and Vishal Kuchanur (CTO) all have backgrounds in agriculture (in addition to biotech and software), which propelled them to start the company in 2022.

Varaha named itself after the avatar of Hindu deity Vishnu, best known for lifting the earth from the cosmic ocean and restoring it.
