How CARROT Works

With CARROT, we form new Canadian Ag Tech companies by bringing together technology with talent and leading the first round of capital to commercialize the opportunity. Compared to traditional investing where an existing company is funded, our goal at CARROT is to form
new Ag Tech companies and set them up with a solid foundation for success.

Is CARROT For You?

CARROT is not a seed-stage investor for existing startups.

At CARROT, we form new Ag Tech companies. We're looking for outstanding Ag Tech that solves substantive market problems, and proven executives to be the founder-CEO of a new company.
