Blue White Robotics positioned as a global leader in “Robots as a service” (RaaS) with its autonomous farm platform
Blue White Robotics, a platform that provides Robots-as-a-Service (RaaS) that enables farms to run themselves autonomously, today announces $37M in Series B funding, led by New York-based global private equity and venture capital firm Insight Partners. Entrée Capital co-led this Series B after having seeded Blue White Robotics and participated in its Series A round. They are joined by Clal Insurance, Jesselson Family Office, Peregrine VC, and Regah Ventures who also made significant contributions in this round. With the trust of their market-leading clients and partners, they will use this new funding to increase the rapid adoption of these technologies, drive new US sales, and attract key talent for their all-star international team.
Blue White Robotics creates a cohesive experience across farming operations year-round from sprays and harvesting to disking and seeding. By retrofitting existing infrastructure with intelligent autonomous algorithms, the robot tractors improve farm productivity, precision, and worker safety. Additionally, the Blue White Robotics platform collects and distributes data that creates new services to increase yields and reduce inputs for the growing autonomous operation. The company’s values of “Fellowship, Love of the land, and Innovation” carry through all aspects of the company’s mission to revolutionize agriculture through autonomy. The autonomous farming technology company now enjoys $50M of investment since its inception in 2017.
“With this new round of investment by some truly world-changing leaders, we have the power to continue our vision for a safer, smarter, and productive autonomous farm for the 21st-century,” explains Ben Alfi, co-founder and CEO of Blue White Robotics. “Our amazing team is excited by this renewed commitment to solve the many issues facing our modern farmer and the food system as a whole.”

Blue White Robotics’ value proposition is unparalleled in agriculture technology, and they truly stand by the need for “Autonomy, Now, said Daniel Aronovitz, Vice President at Insight Partners. “The company’s ease of adoption will allow the product to quickly scale within the industry and enter new markets.
