MimosaTEK is a Vietnam-based start-up that provides data, decision-support, and remote control capabilities through sensors and cloud platform using IoT technologies. The company is currently helping farmers in Vietnam to apply precision agriculture by IoT technologies to save resources, improve crop yields, and enhance the lives of Vietnamese farmers.
With more than 10 years of experience in IT industry and certificate Cisco CCIE#26627 (Brussels), Tri Nguyen, former CTO of DTS and former CEO of Saigon CTT, founded MimosaTEK in October 2014 together with his co-founders. Tri himself experienced farming works when starting a strawberry farm in Dalat, Vietnam. He understands the difficulties of farmers in agricultural operations.
