Our Services

We take care of the operational details so you can focus and develop your technology. How?

We Invest More

We invest $500k in each company. Why? Because agtech is a unique category that benefits from largerseed-stage investments to de-risk technologies quicker.

We Created an Ag Ecosystem

We surround entrepreneurs with a robust, global network of ag and food resources, including partners, research institutions and capital sources to help ensure success and turn visions into reality.

We Connect You

Our partners are domain experts and can advise and mentor entrepreneurs to ensure they focus on the right milestones. They have been there before and know how to work with you to make the right decision for your business.

We Provide Value-Add Services

We want every entrepreneur focused on execution, not operations. The biggest challenges at the seed-stage are time and money – and Radicle takes care of both by investing the right amount and effectively taking care of the day-to-day operational tasks.

Support you can count on

Imagine how happy you would be to have a dedicated investor backing your company and the operational support to ensure it runs smoothly.
