Syngenta Ventures Team

We have an experienced team of investment professionals from a diverse range of academic and industry backgrounds including agriculture, life sciences, healthcare, consumer goods, banking and manufacturing. All have one thing in common; substantial, first-hand venture capital experience. This blend of industry and investment experience allows us to provide long term value to our portfolio companies by combining strategic industry insight with financial focus. We play an active role in our portfolio companies and seek out opportunities to add value beyond the capital that we invest.

Our team of investment professionals is located in Research Triangle Park (US) and Basel (Switzerland).
