Launched in July 2016, the second Yield Lab branded accelerator is run out of Galway, Ireland. This Irish-based accelerator was established in order to keep a robust Yield Lab deal pipeline via geographic leverage to the European AgTech deal flow. The Yield Lab Ireland, like St. Louis, will evaluate companies that sustainably increase the world food supply and/or reduce the inputs into the production chain from across the globe, and invest up to €100,000 into selected early stage AgTech companies. Selected companies will participate in 6 months of programming from spring through fall that will expose selected companies to the agricultural, financial and collaborative resources unique to Ireland and mainland Europe.
Companies selected for Yield Lab Ireland will participate in 3-4 days of programming in St. Louis to be exposed to the financial and commercial resources unique to the American Midwest.
