It's time to apply!
The Yield Lab’s Mission is “to Enable Entrepreneurs to Sustainably Revolutionise Agrifood Systems Globally”. Entrepreneurs are their priority. They are creating a revolution through inspirational, independent innovation. Moreover, they enable entrepreneurs’ innovation by providing access to capital, customers & collaborators. Planet, profit, and people must be considered in order for our agrifood systems to achieve sustainability. True transformation will only occur when technology is available globally. Therefore they look for (i) the best entrepreneurs; (ii) with truly innovative and disruptive technologies that are proprietary and difficult to replicate; (iii) which address significant market needs with large addressable global markets and the potential to scale into large businesses; (iv) that sustainably impact upon Agriculture and Food Production systems to enable the world to produce more food with less inputs, and in a way that reduces the world’s environmental degradation that arises from food production, and (v) and which have the potential to become significant and profitable businesses, and which can generate attractive investment returns to our shareholders on exit.
They consider all parts of the food and ag value chain from farm to fork with a focus on upstream technology. The Yield Lab invests across technologies in ‘inter alia’ crop production and plant science, animal health & welfare, precision agriculture, supply chain/logistics, ag/food sustainability, environmental relating to agriculture and food production, farm machinery and food ingredients.
