Endeavor8 backs entrepreneurs and scientists using novel technology pioneered and developed in high margin industries with the capability to expand to other sectors, beginning with food, agriculture, energy, and climate.
We’ve followed this playbook before with our portfolio companies applying learnings from biotechnology, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and more to impact all stages of the food value chain.
We are focused on companies that address changing consumer preferences in food, identify new chemical and biological compounds, conduct data-driven operations improvement, and provide new approaches to finance & risk management.
