Investing in a humane and healthy planet.
Backing and supporting trailblazing entrepreneurs
Entrepreneurs are a critical catalyst for change. They’re pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in food and agriculture – which is why we don’t just write checks. We work to be value-added partners in their growth. We help them push through challenges every day in the lab, the field, the kitchen, so their big ideas can go from seed to growth.

Driven by purpose
With purpose at our core, we invest holistically to meet consumer demands for more nutritious, sustainable, and traceable food. We are backing entrepreneurs who are working to disrupt the food system across the supply chain.
Convening diverse perspectives
Driving change takes more than passion and hard work. We look to connect our ecosystem by making introductions, sharing knowledge and generating leads for our network with the goal of increasing access to capital industry-wide. That includes spurring deeper conversations and building relationships that will drive meaningful impact and ROI. Together, we are working to bring positive change on a scalable level.
