ABOUT VENTURE ORGANIC

We believe that organic, nutrient dense food should be more affordable and available to everybody, and that food should be produced in a sustainable manner that regenerates soils and overcomes our reliance on chemical inputs.

We also believe that businesses involved in the sustainable food system are the primary agents of change, and deserve to be supported and assisted in being as successful as possible.

To achieve these goals, we incubate and encourage Startups and innovations that can create exponential outcomes in this space, as well as offering existing businesses the mentoring, connections and support they need to meet market demand by Scaling Up and growing.

 

We act as a "venture catalyst" for businesses and startups in sustainable food by curating​ a team of the industry’s leading agribusiness mentors, thought leaders, impact investors and startup experts to deliver cutting edge business strategy and solutions, business mentoring, introductions to industry contacts and assistance in finding the capital you need to grow.

Venture Organic is based in Byron Bay, Australia and was founded by Adam Gibson with the support of Sourdough Business Pathways
