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.
