How agrifoodtech will mature after its dot com-style crash

After kicking off his career during the heady days of the dot com boom — and subsequent bust — Eric Archambeau cofounded Astanor Ventures with George Coelho in 2017 as an impact venture capital fund for food and agriculture.

“We founded it with a vision that agrifood was going to go through a deep disruption, needed to move from a system delivering cheap calories to a system delivering affordable nutrients,” Archambeau tells AgFunderNews on a new episode of the Future Food podcast.

Fast forward to today and the European firm has made around 40 investments across the suppy chain and recently announced the closing of its second fund on €360 million.

We caught up with Archambeau on the Future Food podcast as part of a series of interviews and features for the 10-year anniversary of Monsanto’s Climate Corp acquisition and AgFunder’s creation. Read some highlights below and listen to the full interview on the podcast below, here, or wherever you get your podcasts.
