Radicle Growth pioneered a concept called The Radicle Challenge to proactively seek out the best and brightest entrepreneurs solving a problem or looking to disrupt an existing business model in the ag and food industries. The Radicle Challenge is a pitch day competition where start-ups pitch to a panel of world-class judges with the best company receiving a material investment and access to Radicle’s ecosystem. Radicle Growth designs challenges around key investment themes such as stage of innovation.
This has proven to be incredibly valuable as evidenced by Radicle’s portfolio performance and the success of The Radicle Challenge. We’ve partnered with Syngenta, Nutrien, Corteva, Bayer, World Agri-Tech, OurCrowd, Start-Up Nation Central and others on these challenges in an effort to drive deal flow from around the world in technologies, categories or geographies that The Radicle Challenge partners have a significant need or interest.
