Bay Area Sustainable Food & Agriculture Directory
Beta Release, July 2019
ONE WORLD is building a Directory of early-stage sustainable food & agriculture startups and investors (funds and angels) based in the Bay Area. This directory is designed to answer three questions:
Who are the startups?
Who are the investors?
Which investors have invested in which startups?
The accessibility of information on “emerging” startups and investor activity in the sustainable food and agriculture field is limited. This adds to the challenges for both entrepreneurs seeking capital, as well as investors seeking a comprehensive view of the opportunities.
We are aware of existing efforts to identify similar information by other entities, and it is our hope that our efforts can further the work of existing sources, and benefit the entire ecosystem. Our goal is to create a Directory that is freely available and open-sourced and that encourages broad participation and remains up to date.
