Marco Brini has degrees in Mathematics and Business Administration but has gradually shifted to a scientist/entrepreneur targeting Data Decision Support, leveraging a unique international background in the Internet of Things with outdoor environments implementations. He is CTO of EnvEve SA, which he founded in 2008; the company started developing an IoT framework; its market-proven sensors have been deployed in forests, deserts, cities, and fields to collect and analyze data for early warning and reliable decision support. That support comes in a variety of flavors, including forest fire prediction, air quality monitoring, and archeological sites protections, such as the Petra Unesco site.
One of the EnvEve strategies was to connect the “things” of IoT to apps on devices. Anomaly detectors (sensors or things) become anomaly reporters – direct to you – so you can do something about it.
Lately, EnvEve has been selected as the main technical partner by large ag-food corporations to leverage its technology on the improvement of sustainable agricultural intensification. Among the tangible results: saving of water up to 50% with increased production of 250% has been achieved on an extensive Brazilian pilot on cocoa, and 30% pesticides reduction has been achieved in Switzerland along with agronomic risk reduction.
