Vancouver’s ThisFish has won the virtual THRIVE Canada Challenge, taking home top billing in the agtech startup category.
The THRIVE Canada Challenge solves problems of the Canadian agrifood industry, accelerates the development of the ecosystem, and selects the best startups and scale-ups for investment and global recognition.
The developer of seafood traceability software is no stranger to competitions, placing in the Top 10 of the New Ventures BC Competition in 2020.
ThisFish is on a mission to improve the social, environmental, and financial sustainability of the seafood industry. They’re achieving this goal through their proprietary Tally software, which automates and digitizes the collection of production, quality control, and traceability data in seafood processing plants. Through the use of handheld tablets and IoT devices, Tally can provide real-time data while helping processing plants save valuable time, money, and resources.
ThisFish’s prize includes USD $15,000 to go toward travel expenses to participate in a Silicon Valley startup bootcamp. The startup is also invited to pitch at the THRIVE VII Accelerator Finals, and is automatically accepted as a Samsung Extreme Tech Challenge (XTC) finalist.
