Finistere Ventures


Finistere was founded in 2005 by entrepreneurs.  We get it. And we know what it takes to get there. We focus on asking, Why not?  And we partner with the creative thinkers, the dreamers- the entrepreneurs, to build disruptive companies changing modern agriculture. Finistere’s team has founded and invested in some of the most successful AgTech companies of the last quarter of a century. We have over 75 years of operating experience in agricultural technology companies, both large and small. We know what it takes to win and we are active collaborators helping guide companies through each stage of growth.

Finistere has partnered with the Ireland Strategic Investment Fund to create the €20M Ireland AgTech Fund (IAF). The IAF is seeking world class entrepreneurial teams and technologies with the potential for rapid growth in companies that are:

Domestic Irish start-ups

Overseas companies seeking to establish a presence in the E.U. leveraging Ireland’s talent pool, research partnerships and market access

Start-ups anywhere around the globe that can create value for Irish farmers and food producers

The IAF aims to make these investments in collaboration with both local and international investors where our Irish presence allows us to take a leading role in syndication. The Fund size reflects our view that a targeted pool of capital supporting both local tech and inbound investment will be effective for both building the AgTech Island vision and delivering financial returns.
