Our Values

Nitrogen 7 is an agtech startup taking a first principles approach to developing precision agriculture technology.

Our innovations make farmers’ day-to-day easier, farms more productive, increase yields, and enable farmers to lower their impact on the environment.

Our mission is simple:

We exist to help farmers navigate the changing world while protecting our environment.

Problem Statement

Farming is a complex business that involves managing a vast array of tasks, from accounting and loans to equipment maintenance and crop management. With the constantly changing climate and environmental concerns, it has become increasingly difficult for farmers to keep up with these challenges.

At BlackPeak, we believe that technology can revolutionize the way we farm. Our precision agriculture platform includes a farm management app, infield sensors, and drones; building a unique and evolving data set. This data will help us develop proprietary AI models to provide insights across the platform and suite of tools.

Our solutions address issues such as soil erosion, groundwater decline and pollution, nutrition levels in crops, deforestation, waterway and fish ecosystem health, and runoff of fertilizers and insecticides into our oceans. By providing accurate data and insights, we aim to reduce the carbon footprint of farming and mitigate its negative impact on the environment.

Join us in our mission to transform the future of farming with technology.

Mission

Our mission is simple: We exist to help farmers navigate the changing world while protecting our environment.

We believe that both our planet and our species are affected by farming and vice versa. In short, we care about our planet, and we care about the health of our friends and family. 

The changing climate and rapid developments in technology present a challenge and an opportunity. BlackPeak is taking a first principles approach to developing real time solutions.

Our Vision

Clear rivers, tall trees, rolling waves. Bright fish, graceful deer, diving hawks. In our lives, we have already seen the world change; call it what you will, we believe our planet is worth fighting for. 

In simple words, we love nature.

Our Values

  • Deliberately seek hard problems.A life worth living is filled with hard problems. As the world and western culture in particular, seeks ever more for instant gratification and the easy way out; we, as a team, look to the hard problems.As a business, we are the guerrilla fighter who takes the hard ground, delighting in the pain and difficulty this will cause the established armies.
  • Start Small – But be scared of your full vision.  –  Do less, better. 
  • Never be the smartest person in the room.
  • Live immediately (Seneca).
  • Great Design  –  We believe in great design as an aesthetic and a function.
  • Use opensource/opencore code where we can so we can focus on solving new, hard problems.
  • Good has to be defined before you start.  –  We believe in setting our team’s direction by defining what good is to us. Good is doing the right thing even if it means losing money, good is investing in long-term benefits for the team over short-term rewards. 
  • If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid (Epictetus).
  • Creativity is an action, not a feeling.
  • What you do daily is what changes your life.
  • Health is wealth.

Team & Culture

We are an intentionally small, dynamic, and driven team; with a passion for using technology to drive positive change in the world. We value potential over experience and a diverse background over specialization. As a member of our team, you will require the ability to learn fast, a willingness to work hard, integrity, grit, empathy, and a team-first attitude.

There is nothing better in life than doing difficult, meaningful (where possible) things with great people. 

If this strikes homes, join us on this exciting journey to transform the agricultural landscape with first principles problem-solving send your CV to team@nitrogen7.ag for consideration.

We believe:

  • In tackling hard problems
  • The ability to improve is far better than any single talent.
  • That the combination of skills is better than any single skill.
  • Constraints are the root of innovation.
  • It’s do, fail, learn. Not learn, do, then fail. Life is all about failing first, then learning.
  • Acting versus not acting is the high bit of succeeding.
  • A slave is one who waits for someone to come and free him.
  • In fostering the love of challenge.
  • Words to live by: “how can I help.”
  • A team is made of loyalty, passion, and hard work.

Platform & Road Map

We are building a platform that will reinvent the natural resource industry.

We are starting small with a precision farming app. FieldScout provides farmers with 4 tools: Field reports, task management, inventory, and compliance.

From here, we will build out an ecosystem of products and devices on our platform, expanding into ranching, mining, timber, and oil.
