Based on our vision and goals, we seek to become an Ag-innovation leader by investing in new cutting-edge technologies, IP, and innovation. Our focus is on innovative solutions that are simple and easy to implement and with clear added value to the growers and to the supply chain. We either invest directly or through dedicated funds.
A $6M dedicated Ag-fund managed by Dr. Ido Schechter focused on promising applied technologies originating from the Hebrew University’s Faculty of Agriculture which includes over 100 researchers working on novel inventions in diverse fields such as agriculture, food, nutrition, veterinary medicine, and clean-tech. Each year, the fund invests in approximately three different outstanding early-stage projects, at times with a strategic partner, with the objective of bringing them to a successful proof-of-concept. The projects will then be the bases for the foundation of start-up companies for the further development and commercialization of cutting-edge products.
The Hebrew University’s Faculty of Agriculture is the source of an impressive track record of commercial success and is responsible for Israel’s leadership in the field. Agrinnovation is an efficient investment vehicle for the next generation of groundbreaking innovation, which will ultimately give rise to innovative ag-tech products.
