Emmertech is a $60 million venture capital fund focused on agtech and agribusiness innovation. The fund was built by the industry, with our investors being some of Canada’s most innovative farmers, agribusiness owners and agriculturally-centered financial institutions.

We believe with proper access to capital, Canada is poised to become a global leader in the agtech space. 

Why agtech?

Global demand for food continues to rise, with an estimated 3 billion more mouths to feed by 2050.  

While agriculture has radically transformed in the last 100 years, the industry continues to face challenges to meet the world’s demand for food. With proper access to capital Canada can become a leader in solving a global problem. 



Man in his 30s in a tractor on the farm. It is seeding time in the spring. There are many monitors to his right, this is a hi-tech farming operation.

Our approach

We have thrown out the playbook when it comes to early stage investing. We believe agtech founders need investors to bet bigger and earlier then we see in the general tech space. Emmertech provides founders with proper access to capital to help them grow. 

Fund network

Emmertech brings together key agribusiness leaders from across North America. Our investors include key stakeholders in the agricultural ecosystem, from boots-on-the-ground farmers to large multinational agribusiness leaders.

We are also proudly supported by Innovation Saskatchewan through a $15M commitment to the fund.

Portfolio companies


Emmertech is a founding partner, alongside Cultivator powered by Conexus and Economic Development Regina, in the AGTECH ACCELERATOR.
