OVERVIEW

Better innovations in food and agriculture will both provide a healthier population today, and improve the environment for current and future generations. Rural development, sustainable production, efficient distribution and accessible, affordable healthy food are all aspirational opportunities for entrepreneurs. We work with entrepreneurs from across the value chain that provide technologies and services for a more inclusive and sustainable food and agriculture system.

TESTIMONIALS

Bryce Butler
Managing Director
Access Ventures

We started this program five years ago with the belief that there are great entrepreneurs everywhere who have the capacity to solve major challenges in food and agriculture, and that the problems we see here in Kentucky are relevant to other agricultural communities around the country and around the world. We are excited about the future of Village Capital’s agriculture program and look forward to growing our footprint nationally.

Village Capital’s Agriculture program brings together entrepreneurs from across the value chain in food and agriculture. We believe it’s very important that entrepreneurs are able to understand how they fit into the market more generally.

Lisa Curtis
Founder & CEO
Kuli Kuli Foods

As one of the startups in Village Capital’s program, I gained a ton of insight around how to better pitch Kuli Kuli. I also received some great advice on hiring, and lots of good connections. It was the best accelerator I’ve done.
