3Bee is an Agri-Tech start-up founded in 2017 by Niccolò Calandri (PhD, Electronic Engineer) and Riccardo Balzaretti (PhD, Biologist and Beekeeper).

We develop and realize innovative solutions for beekeeping. Our aim is to optimize and improve through technology the beekeepers’ work, safeguarding at the same time bee health. The hive remote monitoring allows beekeepers to better manage their work, intervening only when necessary to help bees in the best way.
At the same time, productivity and efficiency are increased.

In 3 years, our team has been expanded. We are now 15 young innovators, that exploit every day their expertise in R&D, operation, and marketing.
We are completely established in Italy, between Como and Milan.

At the same time, we have reached 10 different countries (Italy, France, Australia, New Zealand, Mozambique, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Romania, and Moldova), selling more than 5,000 monitoring systems for beekeeping. Over 3,000 beekeepers now use our devices.

With our technologies, we give support to beekeepers in apiaries, but we also want to help them in other aspects of their work. For this reason, we have developed the “Adopt a Hive” programme, that allows beekeepers to sell their honey at a fair price through our online platform, reaching a incredibly wide customer base. At the present day, we have sold more than 40 tons of honey at a retail price.

This is how far we have come. Now, we have a brand-new version of our monitoring systems, and we are developing new tools for beekeepers and their work. With this crowdfunding, we aim at producing and marketing them all over the world.
