Germin8 is one of the most active investors in FoodTech and AgTech, globally. With strong strategic backing and unique approaches, we're investing in exceptional founding teams who are solving the most demanding problems throughout the global food & agriculture system with transformative technology platforms across AI/ML, IOT, SaaS, biology, life sciences, computer vision, robotics, marketplaces and beyond.
Our mandate is strictly food and agriculture technology throughout the value chain. Germin8 does not invest in CPG food brands, unless there is a significant enabling technology breakthrough and/or impact thesis to dramatically improve human health, nourishment and/or environmental sustainability. Novelties are out of our scope.
