Early stage capital for food & agriculture tech companies

From planetary boundaries to sustainable food systems

Driving environmental impact through food & agriculture investments


We are a specialist food & agriculture VC fund investing in Seed & Serie-A companies in Western Europe that change the value chain of food & agriculture. Forever.

Food production accounts for nearly 25% of climate-changing greenhouse gas emissions, is the biggest driver of biodiversity loss, the primary cause of land-use change, one of the largest sources of nitrogen and phosphorus pollution and it generates huge freshwater demand. If we want a sustainable future on earth we need to stay within the planetary boundaries which are holding the stability of the earth together.

Planetary boundaries

In 2009 Johan Rockström led a group of 28 internationally renowned scientists to identify the nine processes that regulate the stability and resilience of the Earth System and are essential for human survival; the planetary boundaries.

The scientists proposed quantitative planetary boundaries within which humanity can continue to develop and thrive for generations to come. Crossing these boundaries increases the risk of generating large-scale abrupt or irreversible environmental changes.


“Nothing short of a systemic transformation of food systems is required to feed the world’s current and future population sustainably under climate change” – Johan Rockström

We believe, driving innovation and change to these food systems, will eventually transform them from being the cause of overstretching the planetary boundaries to becoming the solution.

We also believe that the entrepreneurial minds of our time are up for the challenge. So we contribute by adding capital, knowledge and network to help make a positive environmental impact with their food & agriculture ventures.


Taking impact seriously will be the new norm, for all of us.

We developed our own methodology which we will apply through the whole investment process, from screening deals, creating value and portfolio management, straight to our own impact carry. We have an international impact framework in place bringing transformation to the most pressing F&A themes.

Our focus

We look for bright teams that build companies around innovative technology and new business models. Enduring founders that want have impact on the agricultural, horticultural or food industries.

Our focus is on North-West Europe based tech-ventures within the realm of agriculture and food innovation. We very much welcome technology crossovers from other sectors, because we believe that the future lies in innovation and cooperation within and across the industries.
Investing in promising innovations across three transformation themes.

Are we a match?

You have a best-in-class team. Together you rock!

Great! We are fanatics about management. We believe that the team is the core of the investment we make. We do not compromise on management quality. We avoid sole-founder situations and like to see a team that already experienced both hardships and successes together.

You have not floated a unicorn before?

We welcome first-timers; we respect the track record of the ones that failed and try again; we love the entrepreneur that did it before.

You need funding?

Our sweet-spot is early growth companies that seek a total investment from EUR 500k up to EUR 3.0m.

Your company needs more than that?

Perfect, we agree that there is more than money that drives success.
Our Investors are founders themselves and are happy to share personal experience, advice and their network with you.

You were talking more funding?

No problem, as we believe in teamwork, we can always bring in our VC friends, angels or strategic partners.

You have found your unique product-market fit?

Good! We are reluctant to invest in companies that do not possess their own innovative technology, are pure brand plays, have not yet found their customer, or are not scalable.

Not there yet, however convinced we should meet you?
