We're very pleased share the announcement that we are lead Series A investors in Infarm, Europe's urban farming leader, alongside TriplePoint Capital, and Mons Investments LLC, as well as previous investors Cherry Ventures, QUADIA and LocalGlobe. Infarm was founded in 2013 by Osnat Michaeli and brothers Erez and Guy Galonska.
Only 2 years after introducing the concept of in-store farming to the world, Infarm is now operating more than 50 farms across Berlin in supermarket aisles, restaurant kitchens, and distribution warehouses. Infarm's distributed farms are connected by the company's central farming platform, creating a first of its kind urban farming network. Each farm is a controlled ecosystem with growing recipes that tailor light, temperature, pH, and nutrients to ensure the maximum natural expression of each plant. Each farm acts as a data pipeline, sending information on plant growth to the Infarm platform 24/7 allowing it to learn, adjust, and optimise.
