Investing in Nutrition
and the Future of Health
Healthy food yields healthy people.
Our Core Areas of Focus
What we eat has a direct impact on how we feel. We can’t fix our health without addressing nutrition and access.
Working alongside innovative food system entrepreneurs, established market leaders, impact investors and the others leading this charge.
As venture investors, we take a balanced portfolio approach, using diversification to narrow risk.
Poor nutrition is driving an unsustainable increase in disease and treatment costs.
The CDC estimates that almost 75% of U.S. adults aged 20 or older are overweight or obese.
Almost half the US population (45%) are either diabetic or prediabetic.
The U.S. alone spends $2T/year treating food related health conditions.
At the same time, agriculture is facing a crisis.
Global population growth of 29% by 2050 will create a huge “protein gap” as 3.5B people around the world enter the middle class.
Demand for protein will rise 100% over the next three decades, pushing unsustainable depletion of natural resources and increase in emissions.
By 2050, the global agriculture industry will require 67% increase in arable land, 65% more irrigation water. Without innovation, ag-related emissions will increase 85%.
We Invest in Convergence of AgTech and Human Health
At iSelect we are focused on supporting soil and crop health solutions to meet surging global protein demand, improve the taste, nutrition and affordability of food, boost farmer profitability, and increase environmental sustainability.
In the health sector, we’re investing in data analysis and delivery technologies that enable early detection, intervention, prevention, and treatment of cardio-metabolic diseases.
