Since March, a groundbreaking program has been underway to support Latin American food and agriculture technology startups seeking Series A funding in the United States. The program will culminate in an online Demo Day on June 15th at noon (EST) for accredited investors, sponsored by DLA Piper and Microsoft.

Led by Base Miami, Mana Tech, and Koi Group, the “AgriFood Tech” program aims to guide these startups through the intricate process of raising Series A funding in the US, a challenge for companies unfamiliar with the US investment landscape. With the guidance and expertise of experienced mentors and industry leaders like Etienne Gillard, Head of Ventures at Mana Tech, the program serves as a bridge, equipping startups with the necessary tools and support to successfully close their Series A round.

The program brings together several companies from diverse food and agriculture verticals, showcasing innovative approaches to sustainable agriculture, advanced food processing, and cutting-edge technologies. These startups share a common goal: making a positive impact on the world through groundbreaking solutions.
