The Yield Lab formed in 2014 to address a lack of capital and support for early-stage agriculture technology companies. Agriculture innovation is essential in feeding a rising global population and accompanying demand. Our founder, Thad Simons, brought together a group of former agribusiness executives to build a team that would provide capital and coaching to accelerate sustainable agtech companies.
Over forty portfolio companies, four cohorts, and four international accelerators later, we continue to grow and evolve to meet the need for agricultural innovation in order to sustainably feed the world.
We currently do this through our...
1. Accelerators - Each accelerator invests $100,000 in early stage agtech companies, provides network focused programming with a focus on customers, collaborators, and capital, and provides mentorship from our team of agribusiness experts.
The Yield Lab enables entrepreneurs to sustainably revolutionize agrifood systems, globally.
Entrepreneurs are our priority.
We are creating opportunity through inspirational, independent innovation.
MISSION & VISION
