High-Tech Capitalists Invest In Food Start-Ups, Promote Sustainability In Food Market

April 28, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Silicon Valley venture capitalists invested around $350 million in food companies in 2012, with investment deals in the food market increasing 37 percent from the previous year, according to a report by CB Insights. Although it is just a tiny portion of the $30 billion that venture capitalists invest, it helped finance a wide range of food startup companies. Seeking to transform the food industry, investors are focusing on improving the sustainability capabilities of food startups. Some of the leading venture capital firms in the valley, including Khosla, SV Angel, and Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, are involved in food industry-focused projects.
