Radicle Growth is a San Diego, Calif.-based accelerator and venture capital firm.
In our latest Radicle Challenge, we’ve teamed up with Syngenta, a leading agriculture company helping to improve global food security sustainably, to invest in two technology companies that are transforming the future of protein. This could include new protein sources, new protein conversion technologies, or improvements to existing protein systems. Consumers globally are demanding more protein and are looking for new sources of that protein. A $1m investment will be made in the Challenge winner and a $250k investment to the second-place winner (in addition to a custom acceleration program and access to Radicle and Syngenta’s global ag networks). The global applicant pool will be narrowed to 4-6 finalists who will participate in a Pitch Day event this Fall with our panel of judges, including Erik Fyrwald, CEO of Syngenta, and Kirk Haney, Managing Partner of Radicle Growth. Applications open on Tuesday, April 28 and will be accepted from companies of all stages, all around the world.
