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.
Ag Startup Engine views agriculture technology broadly.
