Our Selection & Investment Criteria

Our programs are designed to help create triple-bottom-line ventures, aligned to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. 

Since presenting at the Ag Innovation Showcase and introductions to key players within ag tech, we have raised tens of millions of dollars of institutional capital across multiple rounds of funding. This wouldn't be possible without Larta Institute.
