Winner of the Radicle Challenge Pitch Day at World Agri-Tech

Creator of technology providing quantitative digital representations of taste and smell that isolates all of the natural human olfactory receptors and converts them to a standardized diagnostic format, directly measuring how people perceive odors and flavors for the first time.

Bringing a disruptive technology to market isn’t easy, but we are excited to have partnered with Radicle Growth and their network to accelerate our development efforts and find optimal product market fits.”

A full stack (hardware/software/data) company building robots to help people work more productively.

84% of the US crop workforce tends to largely non-mechanized fruit, vegetable, and nursery production, but rising wages and a shrinking workforce are driving growers of these specialty crops to turn to robots to reduce labor needs and costs. We are thrilled to have Radicle Growth’s support, which will allow us to accelerate the commercialization of Burro and to develop the proprietary datasets needed to enable further autonomy.

Providers of groundbreaking technology that integrates photobiology, engineering and data science to sustainably increase yields. 

Radicle Growth has provided us with much more than financing. Through the Radicle Growth ecosystem, we have been introduced to some of the top Ag and Food companies globally. CEO Kirk Haney has been a great sounding-board for our management team, as well as with corporate development and recruiting. In the short-time since our round has closed, we have already received significant benefit from our relationship with Kirk and Radicle Growth.

Saving 15 million pounds of produce from going to waste and making a positive impact on climate change by connecting food and beverage companies with farms through their marketplace for surplus and imperfect produce. 

Choosing to work with Radicle Growth has been one of the best business decisions I have made. Throughout my time working with Radicle Growth, CEO Kirk Haney has demonstrated a level of domain expertise and coaching that I have found to be invaluable. The Radicle Growth team goes above and beyond to market Full Harvest and make introductions that have been crucial as I have built out our product offering and prepped for our Series A.

Winner of the Radicle Global Pre-Seed (GPS) Challenge 

A digital agriculture network connecting AgTech APIs and data and making agriculture data accessible from any source with a single API. Leaf’s technology makes it easy to access high quality agriculture data, validate user access, and deploy recommendations across data providers.

Increasingly, farmers demand all-in-one solutions for their agriculture data. In response, agtech companies both large and small are quickly forming partnerships and programmatic connections between their data platforms via APIs. However, we see the vast majority of agtech companies struggling to implement and maintain their partnerships at a technical level while balancing the development of their core products. Our solution allows them to activate instant connections with their partners and remain focused on their own innovations. We’re honored to be recognized as the winner of the GPS Challenge and excited to continue our network’s expansion into North America with our new strategic partners at Radicle Growth.

An IoT technology innovator providing solutions to improve food safety and grain storage.

We have seen with bumper crops that often result in surplus grain causing storage headaches around the globe, it is painfully clear that the grain industry needs to maximize the value of stored grain. Being able to safely store grain for longer periods of time allows more control over if and when to sell by decreasing the pressure from seasonal pricing fluctuations, global trade and tariff concerns, and currency issues. We want storage operators to have a clear view of the real-time conditions of all stored grains so potential issues can be detected and mitigated before they impact grain quality.

Dedicated to solving the issue of weed resistance, the company’s revolutionary green bioherbicide solution blocks the spread of weeds’ reproduction mechanisms.

Weed resistance is a major threat to global food security and sustainability. Weeds continue to develop resistance and no longer respond to existing chemical herbicides. The funding and collaboration with Radicle Growth provides us a huge opportunity to continue our mission to combat this issue that causes more than $40 billion in global losses annually.”

Radicle II Portfolio

Winner of the Nutrien-Radicle Challenge 

Developer of high-performance natural alternatives to synthetic chemical pesticides and fertilizers and has pioneered a method to target active ingredients to cellular delivery.

Radicle Growth put a lot of time into understanding what we’re doing as a company. We had broad range of industry leaders serving as judges – all learning about your technology, learning about how to apply it and also giving some great feedback. We’re looking at this not just as a source of dollars but of partnerships and advice and a platform to be able to build the company from where it is to the next level is really.
