Jason Aramburu Is Priming Edyn For A Big Future

The New York Times recently reported about Edyn, a smart garden system that monitors and tracks environmental conditions. But it goes well beyond that as Edyn’s founder, Jason Aramburu, is trying to tackle the problems of drought and the global food shortage.

The soil sensor and water valve devices are topped by solar panels, and their duty is to determine how much water should be delivered to a garden via Wi-Fi communications and a smartphone app. The sensors can collate data surrounding humidity, or even rain the 5 day forecast, and automatically adjust water flow to your garden accordingly; one sensor can monitor 250 square feet of soil.

Aramburu is confident that, moving forward, Edyn will be able to achieve a high level of financial success in the social entrepreneurial realm. And his Kickstarter campaign is testament to that fact: with 29 days remaining Edyn has already surpassed their $100,000 goal and raised $153,121.

“There haven’t been huge, billion-dollar exits yet,” says Aramburu in the original article. “We aim to have the first one.”
