Main Sequence Ventures: Venture capital investment and company building expertise
- Researchers, innovators, and inventors developing ideas that could become globally significant companies.
Food production must double to feed 10 billion people by 2050. Sweeping changes to farming and how we produce food are required; technology and science hold the key.
"Feed 10b People" is an important challenge area in Main Sequence. As Asia Pacific's biggest deep tech venture firm, founded by CSIRO, we help by fueling inventors' ideas with capital and support.
Main Sequence welcomes approaches from researchers, innovators, and inventors developing ideas that could become globally significant companies.
Main Sequence Ventures Innovation Fund was created by CSIRO to address the ‘valley of death’ between research and commercialisation.
