Founded in 2016, TERRA is a global innovation accelerator fuelling ground breaking transformation in Food & Agriculture in order to advance the well-being of our people and planet. The program brings together experts, decision-makers, and innovators across the entire value chain - fostering connections that catapult major breakthroughs into scalable solutions by pairing emerging growth companies with established multinationals, in a pilot-driven engagement that leads to tangible results.
The TERRA team reviewed hundreds of applications from emerging growth companies around the world, shortlisting 160 applicants for only 17 spots. Start-ups selected represent eight countries. Unlike other accelerators, TERRA does not require equity from selected start-ups. They must have a product in market/ready to launch and have raised a minimum of seed-funding, better positioning them for productive pilot partnerships with corporate collaborators. Zymtronixis an emerging biotech company with an in-market platform for discovery and production of small molecules by innovating on materials that mimic cell-like structures for optimal enzyme processes at industrial scale.
