The coronavirus pandemic has exposed years of underinvestment in innovation in our food and agriculture system. Archaic supply chains have forced farmers to plow over their fields while millions of people stand in food lines. Farms and factories without automation are closing as workers get sick. And the UN has suggested that 250M people could be pushed to the brink of starvation by year’s end.
This crisis presents us with an opportunity to build a more resilient society by investing in the vanguard of emerging foodtech & agtech startups that can transform our food system in a post-COVID world. It’s time to demand a more visionary future.
Based in Silicon Valley, we’ve built AgFunder as a new kind of investment platform. One to scalably educate investors, entrepreneurs, and industry incumbents to the challenges and opportunities in our food and agriculture system, and to be a trusted and accessible channel to invest in the future of food and ag. We believe this ecosystem-driven approach gives us structural advantage to better identify opportunities and support our portfolio companies.
Through AgFunderNews and our research reports we have created a global brand with over 75,000 subscribers. With our knowledge base of nearly 30,000 foodtech and agtech startups we help some of the world’s largest food and agriculture corporations navigate the innovation landscape. Through our venture capital funds we have become one of the most active venture capital investors in the industry.
Under these unique circumstances, we’re reopening Fund III, our global foodtech and agtech fund, to new investors for the next 30 days (Ends June 5, 2020). Our primary focus is Seed - Series B, and Fund III has already built an exceptional portfolio of startups that are solving problems in our food system through automation, digitization of the supply chain, food waste, alternative proteins, and nutrition, with co-investors that include Andreessen Horowitz, Bessemer, Data Collective, First Round, Greycroft, Felicis Ventures, Horizons Ventures, S2G, and Sequoia.
