AgFunder Expands Portfolio with Management of Blue Horizon’s Growth Fund

AgFunder, a leading agrifoodtech venture capital and intelligence platform, has recently assumed management of Blue Horizon’s growth fund. Based in Zürich, Blue Horizon has opted to refocus on its core operational activities, exiting the investment advisory sector to drive forward the global shift towards a sustainable food system.

For Limited Partners (LPs) invested in the Growth Fund, this transition brings access to AgFunder’s expansive global network. AgFunder operates from key hubs in Silicon Valley, London, and Singapore, ensuring continuity through a team transition from Blue Horizon. LPs will also benefit from AgFunder’s resources, including AgFunderNews, comprehensive research capabilities, and GAIA, their proprietary database and AI platform encompassing over 60,000 agtech and foodtech startups.

We remain committed to shaping, supporting, and promoting operational excellence and innovation within the alternative protein industry.”
