Our Story

OneCup came to life over a family campout in rural Canada. Our ranching family openly discussed the challenges of running a ranch. Growing a ranch business has become increasingly difficult.


We quickly realized that Artificial Intelligence, not the other AI 😀, could enable precision ranching - at scale.

OneCup AI was born.
