The Yield Lab
Launched in 2017, The Yield Lab LatAm was conceived to take a leading role in building and nurturing the emerging AgTech ecosystem in Latin America by supporting entrepreneurs, bringing together public and private stakeholders, providing funding and driving the “market making” needed to support the long term growth of the sector.
The Yield Lab LATAM 2020 accelerator program will meet over the course of the 2020 calendar year. Programming sessions will run for one or two days and will take place at a combination of virtual, on site at the co's offices, residential at Yield Lab LATAM headquarters or at key agriculture events across the globe. During this time, companies will be guided through a uniquely developed accelerator program designed to leverage the agriculture assets unique to Latin America. The accelerator fund will invest up to $100,000 into early stage technology companies that sustainably revolutionize agrifood systems globally.
Yield Lab programming places an emphasis on providing access to customers, collaborators, and capital. Each company will be assigned a dedicated Yield Lab Managing Partner to guide them through the course of programming and beyond.
