WHY AGTECH AND WHY NOW? 

Nebraska Cattle
MIDWEST

The Midwest is missing a leading Ag-Tech seed fund.

UNDERFUNDED

Ag-Tech is a nascent and dramatically underfunded segment.

TRANSFORMATION

The ag and food system is undergoing a profound transformation. We must adapt and innovate.

NEW APPROACH

The typical tech-first approach of venture capital doesn’t match the customer-first realities in Agriculture.

GLOBAL NEEDS

CHANGING CONSUMER PREFERENCES

IMPROVE FOOD TRANSPARENCY

SUSTAINABILITY, REGENERATION AND IMPACT

PREPARE FOR POPULATION INCREASE

EMERGING TECHNOLOGY

BETTER SUPPLY CHAIN

DIFFERENTIATORS

THE BENCH

We’ve assembled an incredibly robust network – that we’re calling The Bench – of agriculture producers (including next generation farmers), agribusinesses, founders, managers, networkers, and mentors, to not only help us validate problems and opportunities within Ag-Tech, but to also serve as advisors, coaches, and first-customers for our portfolio companies.

FARMER FIRST

We’re proud that our fund is backed almost exclusively by agriculture producers and agribusiness. This will foster our approach of understanding and backing founders solving real problems with real solutions for Midwest agriculture.
