Forbes says we’re putting our money where our mouth is, and they’re right! We’re excited to share our story, and we owe a big thanks to Forbes’ food and tech writer, Danielle Gould.
Lots of folks are talking about how to create a more sustainable food system in anticipation of 10 billion people by 2050. We’re hoping to turn some of that talk into action.
In a $6.4 trillion food and agriculture industry, there’s lots of room to sustainably innovate. After experiencing inefficient communication within the industry a few years ago, our CEO Rob Leclerc, decided the wheels could use a little grease. Here’s what Forbes’ Danielle Gould wrote about Rob’s experiences:
While working as an associate and then as a Partner at SeedRock Capital Group, a venture capital firm focused on natural resources and agriculture, Leclerc had trouble raising additional capital for one of the fund’s investments in a West African agriculture project. He spent most of his time educating investors about opportunities in agriculture. “It made me say, there’s gotta be a better way to do this,” he explains.
We think AgFunder is that better way. We’re sending a big thanks to Danielle Gould for taking the time and featuring our mission! Check out her article—it will tell ya about us, our vision, and how we work.
