Why FoodTech & AgTech?

Driven by shifts in eating habits, population growth, climate change, and failing soils, our food and agriculture industry faces moonshot-sized challenges. 

Agri-FoodTech entrepreneurs are stepping up to solve these problems by harnessing the most advanced technologies. From plant-based protein, gene-editing, drones and indoor farming to satellite imaging, precision farming, and computational biology, founders are driving radical transformation in our food and agriculture system with technology.


AgriFoodTech investment reached $29 billion in 2022, up more than 7X from 2012.

"One of the things that has helped accelerate agtech is AgFunder; you guys have been phenomenal in educating the market, both the VCs and the entrepreneurs, and I’m really thankful for the help you guys are bringing to this space.”

Founder of BlueRiver (Sold to John Deere for $305M)
