The premier seed program for agriculture startups.

At Ag Startup Engine

Our vision is to continue driving growth and innovation in the midwest agriculture ecosystem, while building a strong community of entrepreneurs, investors, and supporters.

We believe that the success of our founders and portfolio companies is a testament to the value of our approach. We want to be a driving force for positive change in the agriculture industry, supporting entrepreneurs and investors as they create solutions to solve real-world problems in the midwest. 

Our priorities:

Access to a network of successful entrepreneurs, business professionals, and investors.

Early seed round investment ($25,000-$100,000) with a plan to enhance enterprise value.

Ag Startup Engine Origin

ASE Funds I & II were created to solve lack of early stage investments, but beyond that they created:

System: An organized and simple way to deploy early-stage capital, with a working and repeatable model.

Relationships: A nationwide network of AgTech entrepreneurs, experts, and investors.

Momentum: Credibility for the Ag Startup Engine brand and momentum in the AgTech space and a need for larger capital investments.

Our Focus

Ag Startup Engine views agriculture technology broadly.
