Current Portfolio

The Ag Startup Engine aims to help its individual portfolio companies grow through funding and mentorship and create a community of startups that can build each other up and utilize existing infrastructure. The Ag Startup Engine is located in Ames, Iowa. Its close proximity to Iowa State University is beneficial in many ways. Many of the companies count an ISU degree-holder as a founder or co-founder, and all are continually involved in the entrepreneurial atmosphere in Central Iowa and beyond.
