Deal News - GreenGate Partners advises BayWa Venture GmbH

GreenGate Partners advises BayWa Venture GmbH on its participation in the EUR 35 million financing round in Equinom Ltd in Israel.

Equinom is an expert in food, technology and agriculture. The company breeds new non-GMO varieties of the plant-based food industry’s primary source crops including pea and soy. Optimizing the crops specifically for food, they require minimal processing, thereby improving taste and nutrition while reducing cost and complexity.

The financing round was led by Synthesis Capital, a leading global food technology and alternative protein investor, with additional investment from Praesidium, Bunge Ventures, the for-profit global investment arm of Bunge, BayWa Venture GmbH, CPT Capital and returning investors Fortissimo Capital and Phoenix.

BayWa Venture GmbH is the venture arm of BayWa AG that invests internationally in start-ups in order to serve the customer needs of tomorrow with their solutions. To this end, the company invests corporate venture capital in strategically relevant innovations and technologies. Their goal is to support the development of the respective start-up and to generate a positive return on investment through a minority stake in the subsequent successful start-up journey.
