Our partners can invest in startups we identify for them through our accelerator programs or we can deliver them startups for direct investment.

Mission & Vision

Our food system is broken. The world’s population is expected to grow to 9.8 billion by 2050 and will comprise of people who, on average, will live longer than ever before. To accommodate this, current food production will need to almost double. Yet, our current food production system is inefficient, unsustainable, and cannot be scaled to meet the growing demands of an ageing and ever-increasing global population. 

As such, we have developed various accelerator programs designed to invest in and support early-stage startups that are using technology to disrupt our food systems.
