Driving Innovation in Agriculture and Beyond

As one of the pioneering corporate venture capital units in the agriculture industry, Syngenta Group Ventures has supported innovative startup companies worldwide for more than a decade as they solve challenges facing the global agri-food supply chain. Over time, we have seen new forms of innovation beyond the “product R&D” based model of the past. This is especially true in emerging markets as new business models, such as e-commerce and financial technology, seek to fill gaps around market access and credit availability.
