The Yield Lab Institute drives sustainable agrifood tech innovation, globally.

We believe that sustainably feeding the global population will require an increase in diverse innovation in the area of agrifood technology 

Our History


The Yield Lab Institute was formed in July 2017 by team members of The Yield Lab. We saw the opportunity and the need to engage in agrifood tech entrepreneurship in a meaningful way outside of the barrier of a venture capital model.

The Problem:

Agtech investment is peaking but...

  • Connectivity within a nd between stakeholder groups remains limited.

  • “Impact” investment is largely qualitative

  • Innovative solutions to crucial problems continues to lag

  • Adoption isn’t keepi ng up

Our Focus:

The Yield Lab Institute is focused on driving more effective innovation to the market. We believe that this can be done by attracting greater diversity of innovators to agrifood tech space, and by clearly communicating the needs of current stakeholders. We can do this in a multitude of ways, from researching, advising, and consulting in specific ecosystems, to  incentivizing and assisting entrepreneurship in specific sectors of agrifood technology.

At the Yield Lab Institute, we support innovation in agricultural and food systems by connecting and educating stakeholders (entrepreneurs, producers, distribution channel partners, agribusiness experts, investors, researchers, and eaters), globally.
