The Yield Lab Asia Pacific
Launched in November 2018, the Yield Lab Asia Pacific, based in Singapore, is the latest expansion of the global The Yield Lab branded accelerator, which is a food and agricultural technology (agrifood tech) accelerator and venture fund. Structured similarly to its peer accelerators in North America, Europe, and Latin America, this fund will focus on driving innovation across the entire Asia Pacific region. The Yield Lab Asia Pacific accelerator operates on a 12 month cycle, which is part formal training and part mentorship from our team of agribusiness experts.
The Yield Lab Asia Pacific will invest US $100,000 into seed stage technology companies that revolutionize agricultural and food systems to sustainably provide for the world. These startups take part in tailored accelerator programming and receive one on one mentorship and access to the Yield Lab’s global network of agricultural businesses, scientists, farmers and investors. The training focuses on customers, collaborations, and capital. The Yield Lab focuses on startup technologies in crop production and plant science, animal health and welfare, precision agriculture, supply chain/logistics, sustainability, and food ingredients. The Yield Lab can make an additional seed and series A investments into opportunities selected from its accelerator graduates and other agrifood tech opportunities.
The Yield Lab Asia Pacific programming operates on an annual cohort basis, and is customized to each cohort of companies. Each company will be assigned a dedicated The Yield Lab Managing Partner to guide them through the course of programming and individualized one on one mentoring throughout the 12 months. Additionally, The Yield Lab has an extensive affinity network extending across the world to help each portfolio company in their pursuit of growth. The Yield Lab Asia-Pacific will continue to expand its footprint across the region and has an affinity network extending across the world – including its global headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri and accelerators in Buenos Aires, Argentina and Dublin, Ireland – to help each portfolio company in their pursuit of growth.
The Yield Lab Asia Pacific is accepting applications until April 30th for its 2019 Accelerator investments via F6S application.
