Have you wondered why agtech/ agritech hasn't produced a #unicorn yet? Why has an agtech venture's valuation not crossed a billion dollars?
It's possibly because the global market for software in farming will cross $5 billion in 2026 — farming discovered software recently. [1/5]
My story today is on a pioneering software company from Bengaluru, @CropInTech (Estd 2010) which built its management muscle in the past year on the back of two intuitive strategic calls by Co-founder & CEO Krishna Kumar in mid-2018. [2/5]
Almost two years before the pandemic happened, Krishna put Cropin's focus on a new product called SmartFarm. And then, decided Cropin will not focus on small customers, instead channeling its energies on large enterprises among agri-input producers, seed companies, etc. [3/5]

Did Generation X, who birthed the web & associated technologies, sow the seeds of their own demise?

1/365 - Starting this thread with one of the first Motorcycles to be built in India. The @royalenfield #Bullet350. A Motorcycle which was initially built for the Indian Army but with time found patronage amongst varying genre of people achieving a cult status over the decades. ImageImageImageImage
2/365 - After selling imported Vespas for a while, Bajaj Auto started manufacturing the #Bajaj150 under license in 1959. This was one of the first Scooters in India and certainly changed the 2-Wheeler scene as it was initially available at a significant premium in the market. ImageImageImageImage
3/365 Automobile Products of India (API) was the 1st Scooter maker in India and manufactured the #Lambretta Li 150 Series 2 under license from Innocenti at Bombay in the 1960's. This scooter was very popular and made appearances in a few famous Bollywood movies too. #BikerLife ImageImageImageImage

The world’s second-largest economy, #China, has recently launched an #antitrust investigation into Asia’s leading e-commerce company, #Alibaba, listed on the biggest #stock market in the world.
#eCommerce juggernaut seems to be in hot water over its affiliate company, better known as #Ant Group, as #Chinese antitrust regulators plan to review if it was in any way #monopolistic
Such a move by the #Chinese regulators is seen by some market commentators as a huge hit to #JackMa’s e-commerce and #fintech empire

#Zuniceratops (11. 5 feet long, 250-400 pounds) #VS #Unicorn (700-1000 pounds)
#Debate #Thread #Battle #Dinosaurs #Fantasy
Unicorns would have a serious size advantage, with a horn longer than both of Zuniceratops' combined. Dinosaurs pound for pound would be generally stronger than modern mammals, but this wouldn't be enough to make up for the unicorn's greater girth. One might mistakenly think
the unicorn's horn would potentially snap on a Zuniceratop's frill if these two locked horns. However, unlike the frill of a Triceratops, Zuniceratops frills has holes in them, where skin would only be found while the animals were still alive.

Okay folks, I have no idea how this will work out, but I’m going for it. #unicorn #narwhale #rocketship #nebulaaward #hugoaward #dress. Spoilers: I haven’t sewn anything more complex than knitting needle sleeves and pillows in a very long time. Image
The inside seams are practically criminal in their slapdashery and not something I’d show my grandmother, and we still need to iron and hem, but here’s the first few takes: ImageImage
Also one OSHA violation:

Good morning, bbs. After thoughtfully reading your suggestions, I’ve officially decided to name this unicorn bottle hugger toy Mx. Taffeta Champagne Sparkles—Taffy if ya nasty. Mx. Sparkles uses she/her or they/them pronouns & enjoys clinging to things to bring joy to the world.
Keep an eye out for my “adventures” with Taffy this academic year as I go up for tenure & write my second book while on fellowship leave. I anticipate having many days where Mx. Sparkles is the only being I interact with all day. 🙃 #unicorn #AmWriting #ThingsIDoToAmuseMyself
You can follow Taffy on @instagram now: taffetachampagnesparkles. You’re welcome.

Last weekend my partner found this #unicorn “wine bottle hugger” on clearance for $7. This lil buddy now hugs whatever water bottle I’m drinking out of & brings me repeated giggles whenever I look at it. Truly, one of the best gifts I’ve ever received. 😂🦄😂
How does it work you may wonder? Oh, the arms/legs are SNAP BRACELETS. So you can also make it look like this:
Now taking suggestions for naming this unicorn, who is now my fellowship year, work-from-home, accountability partner.

So after the @UKGamesExpo The Game Shop: Aldershot took a few of our pre-release kits off our hands and we said goodbye to our Iconic Pink bag as it went off to find new adventures. Clearly we need a new demo piece so I thought I’d do a Tweet along...…
The D20 I’m going to build today is one of our ‘Unicorn Blood’ kits. This colour is still currently locked on the #Kickstarter but when we get to 1500% or £15k this high spectrum glitter effect will be available in the pledge manager at the end.
#rainbow #unicorn #glitter #diy
So to start off I’ve laid out my pieces in the same pattern as the diagram in the kit, if you have a kit with numbers having a D20 to hand can help you put everything in the right places. Then I’ve got one eyelet piece and one other and tied a standard knot.

Open Banking Thread 1/15

CBPII, The Bastard Stepchild of Open Banking

#openbanking #fintech #cbpii #unicorn
So everyone knows about Account Information Service Providers (AISPs), like @getyolt and @emma_finance

And may be aware of Payment Initiation Service Providers (PISPs), firms that can make payments.

But there's another permission:
Card Based Payment Instrument Issuers (CBPII)
CBPIIs are a rare beast. I've actually never met one. According to @UKOpenBanking there aren't any in the UK, but recently i heard from @TheFCA that they do exist (But they couldn't give any details to protect the confidentiality) of the firm involved.
