Agriculture, one of the largest sectors in the world, has seen relatively little innovation from venture-backed startups. At Bessemer, we see the vast opportunity for tech-enabled agriculture startups to innovate across the value chain. Just as Uber disrupted the taxi industry and Tesla the automotive industry, we believe tech-enabled food companies will fundamentally change the agriculture sector. Since 2018, we’ve invested more than $15 million in four emerging tech-enabled agriculture companies from the seed stage to Series A — Forever Oceans, Black Sheep Foods, Prospera, and Atomo.
The first of its kind, Atomo Molecular Coffee is an all natural coffee made in Seattle, WA without the traditional bean.
Black Sheep Foods

Forever Oceans is committed to protecting our planet and preserving our oceans.
