Creating the Future of Agriculture Today
Our vision is to use technology to provide future generations with secure access to sufficient, nutritional fresh produce worldwide in affordable, moral, and environmentally friendly methods.
To achieve this vision, we are creating the world's largest Agtech incubator, which shall incubate and launch no less than 80 globally disrupting cutting-edge innovations in agriculture by 2030, all based on Israeli science and supported by sovereign grants.
NatureGrowth is constructing a cutting-edge innovation center in the city of Sderot, one hour South of Tel Aviv. The center will include the main offices and state-of-the-art labs for its 15 new companies. The center is expected to be completed by December 15, 2022.
NatureGrowth will operate based upon a clear ESG/SDG policy, with periodic public reporting, and will require its 80 portfolio companies to create and adhere to a clear ESG/SDG policy created with Natura's guidance.
NatureGrowth 's Investment Committee, led by Lazer Bezdin (CIO) seeks, screens, and selects technologies that have all of the following elements:
1. The technology is in one of the five agricultural categories recognized by our team:
Class A – Biology, Genetics, and Special Crops
This subcategory includes genetics, breeding, bio-organic inputs and treatments, and growth ingredients for
protein alternatives, fertilizers, pesticides, and biopharmaceuticals.
Class B - Smart Farming
This subcategory includes sensors, data analytics & AI, farm management software, machinery, robotics, and drones
for pest management, crop security, forecasting, and increased productivity.
Class C - Novel Farming Systems
This subcategory includes greenhouses and materials, hydroponics, indoor and vertical farming solutions, smart
irrigation and water management, and energy solutions for agriculture.
Class D – Livestock, Poultry, and Aquaculture.
This subcategory includes animal health, monitoring, feed, and growth structures and systems.
Class E - Post-Harvest
This subcategory includes storage, treatments, shelf-life prolonging, waste, supply chain, packaging, and
2. The technology is innovative and can be protected by intellectual property.
3. The technology addresses a material 'gap' in global agriculture, leading to a potential valuation of no less than $200M once developed; and
4. The technology can be fully incubated (until becoming an independent viable entity with a product or full proof of concept) within 2 years, with a $2M budget.
