Canada is a country of innovators, yet most of our agriculture products are shipped as raw materials and almost 70% of the machinery on Canadian farms comes from other countries. With lack of capital funding, the entrepreneurs often leave their province to launch high-growth companies elsewhere, taking jobs, wealth and IP along with them.
The Emmertech Venture Capital Fund (Emmertech), managed and operated by Conexus Venture Capital Inc. addresses this challenge. Launched in Summer of 2021, Emmertech reached an Initial Close of $45 million CAD, and expects to cross $60 million by the final close at the end of the 2021. The fund focuses on harnessing the momentum in Canadian agtech, food-tech, and agribusiness innovations, and will support and fund early-stage entrepreneurs.
Our Portfolio Companies
Over the next 10 years, Emmertech will invest in a diversified portfolio of Canadian-based agtech companies, including those accepted into the recently announced Agtech Accelerator with a commitment of investing $15 million of the fund specifically into Saskatchewan-based agtech companies.
While we do not have any active investments, we are finalizing several investment deals. Come back soon to learn who.
