After years of encouragement to turn a school project into a full-fledged business, Fabiane made the tough decision to shift from a stable career path as a software developer to the unknown path of entrepreneurship. Fabiane’s company, Raks, began as a school project in 2015 and currently develops systems to optimize agricultural irrigation processes using innovative field-installed moisture sensors. Raks offers increased productivity, reduced costs and real-time tracking of field information in a simple user interface. In future years, Fabiane hopes to add additional products to the agriculture technology market and become a recognized and trusted name in the industry.
