    Description:

    Founded 2014, Seed 2 Growth (S2G Ventures) is a multi-stage venture fund investing in transformative food and agriculture companies whose products and services meet the shifting demands for healthy, sustainable, and local food. S2G looks for companies that can take leadership positions in emerging and fast growing sectors in food and agriculture. S2G makes investments uniquely from 'soil to shelf,' finding the inflection points where innovation and capital can better align the food system to meet consumer demands. S2G will identify sectors across the food system that are ripe for change, and form a multi-stage portfolio including seed, venture and growth stage investments. Core areas of interest for S2G are agriculture, ingredients, infrastructure and logistics, IT and hardware, food safety and technology, retail and restaurants, and consumer brands.
