Agrotechnology in the Service of a Sustainable and Inclusive Recovery: Investment in the Yield Lab LatAm Opportunity Fund I Regional Fund
Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) has greatly expanded agricultural production since the second half of the 20th century. However, social and environmental problems persist: rural poverty and exclusion continue to be predominant problems in LAC. In this context, the innovative solutions developed by Agtechs play a fundamental role in addressing these challenges, in the region, and in the transition towards inclusive and sustainable food production models. The Yield Lab Latam is a regional fund focused on investments in high impact opportunities in the Ag & Food Tech sector. The fund will invest in 20-30 of the most promising companies in the region that are addressing the most important challenges in the sector.
