Food & AgTech Fund to invest in women-led and diverse companies

The51 Ventures is now fundraising for its Food & AgTech Fund, specific to women-led and diverse businesses in agriculture, food and aquaculture technology sectors.

Inspired by disproportionate investments in women-founded teams, and a need for more diverse representation in ag, The51 is seeking investors, and entrepreneurs.

The organization says championing women and diverse founders offers a fresh perspective, economic potential, and that investing in diversity aligns with the industry’s current trajectory.

“The51 recognizes the significant opportunity within the Food & AgTech sector,” says Judy Fairburn, The51 co-founder and co-CEO. “Within our existing investment and entrepreneurial community, we have a wealth of human and intellectual capital. In particular, many of our investors have backgrounds in farming, ranching, aquaculture and food production along with deep experience in ESG, science and technology. Additionally, we know that all industries are increasingly becoming consumer-driven which necessitates ‘farm to fork’—again we are leveraging leaders in our community who bring valuable experience and know-how. Our capital and our community are a powerful platform for women and diverse founder-led innovation and growth.”
