ImpactAlpha, Nov. 24 – Good Harvest Partners I, Astanor’s first institutional fund, will back “entrepreneurs developing scalable solutions to re-align nature, agriculture, and culture,” said cofounder Eric Archambeau.

The focus is on U.S. and European companies addressing climate-related challenges in agriculture and food production and that advance the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. 

Proof points. The Brussels-based tech investor has backed about 20 companies at multiple growth stages, including insect farming company Ÿnsect, vertical farm operator Infarm, seaweed-based plastics alternative Notpla, and climate modeling startup Cervest.
