Investment Strategy

Cultivian Sandbox invests in innovative food and agriculture technology companies across a wide range of sectors and stages around the world. As early investors and active board members, we employ a hands-on approach to building companies and are often directly involved in setting company strategy, recruiting key executives and raising additional capital. Much more than simply a financial resource, we aim to deliver value through active collaboration with our strategic partners and network.
