Forbes’ 30 Under 30 is an annual list compiled by the prestigious and respected business magazine, recognising individuals by industries across Africa, Asia and America. With only 300 selected overall for the region, and ten from the relevant industry, Valeria’s selection by Forbes recognises the innovative inception of an AI-based Agtech company, facilitating the efficient harvesting of crops with technology.
After completing her BSc and MSc in applied maths and PhD in bioinformatics, Valeria started her career as a researcher in the lab, in AI teams at Biotech startups. She would eventually go on to co-found an AI-based platform to assist oncologists in diagnosis of severe cancer patients. Her previous experience, knowledge of AI and effective business implementation, is an asset to Fermata and to the world.
From all of us at Raw Ventures, we extend our massive congratulations to Valeria for this momentous personal achievement, as a reflection of her entrepreneurship, dedication and ingenuity at Fermata.
