    Eighteen94 capital (1894) is a Venture Capital fund established by the Kellogg Company to make minority investments in companies pursuing next-generation innovation, bolstering access to cutting-edge ideas and trends. The investment mandate includes start-up businesses pioneering new ingredients, foods, packaging, and enabling technology. While stage-agnostic, the fund takes preference in early stage opportunities with companies that have demonstrated good product and market fit and have generated initial revenue. 1894 intends to invest approximately $100 million. Their world-class central R&D facility houses a diverse staff of leading scientists and engineers representing more than 40 different nations.
