Thomas Vaassen, land tenures hold the key to regenerative agriculture?

How do we bring land tenures to the hundreds of millions small holder farmers around the world? An interview with Thomas Vaassen, co-founder of Land Mapp.


Thomas and his co founder ended up working on land tenures because it seemed the key factor in how to unlock value for economic development for small holder farmers.

Thomas shared his experience of building this startup on the ground in Ghana. How they pivoted and changed many of their first assumptions as soon as they started working with real customers:)

They took an ancient system of land rights/tenures and digitalise some parts of it, so land rights could finally reach most of the farmers and not just a few. Because without land documentation no farmer will ever invest in their land because it could be taken away any moment.
