SAN DIEGO, CA, USA, August 29, 2023/EINPresswire.com/ — Nutrien, the world’s largest provider of crop inputs and services, and Radicle Growth, a company-building platform for early-stage ag and food start-up companies, are pleased to announce four finalists for the second ever Radicle Inclusion Challenge Presented by Nutrien.
With a goal to leverage investments to drive innovation and inclusion, Nutrien is focused on supporting underrepresented groups in accessing the capital and resources essential to building successful agtech companies. The challenge seeks to find and fund two early-stage food and agtech companies or entrepreneurs committed to diversity and inclusion while advancing a sustainable food value chain.
Out of more than 190 entries from across the globe, four finalists have been selected to showcase their work at a pitch day on September 28th at the Women in Agribusiness Summit in Nashville, Tennessee. The finalists will compete for one of two U.S. $750,000 investments, valuable collaboration with senior executives at Radicle Growth and Nutrien, and access to Radicle’s company-building platform.
Following the success of the 2022 Inclusion Challenge, Nutrien and Radicle Growth have partnered again to continue to drive a more sustainable food value chain while advancing diversity and inclusion. Assisting diverse groups in agriculture in attaining venture capital and access to resources will help bring new technologies to market that have the potential to impact sustainability in growers’ fields around the world.

Noralee Bradley, Nutrien Executive Vice President, External Affairs and Chief Sustainability and Legal Officer, said, “The future of agriculture depends on our ability to drive innovation in sustainability. Without efforts like the Radicle Inclusion Challenge, many game-changing sustainable concepts and technologies are going unfunded due to a lack of visibility among diverse entrepreneurs. Nutrien’s goal in partnering with Radicle is to shed light on just some of this work in hopes to drive awareness around what we see as wealth of largely untapped potential.”
Kirk Haney, Managing Partner at Radicle Growth, said: “We are very impressed with the high-quality entrepreneurs and technologies we have identified through the Radicle Challenge process. This Challenge has resulted in data-driven market intelligence on diversity and inclusion in agtech. We look forward to leveraging these insights to drive systemic change and lead the next wave of innovation in agtech.”
