The Funding Farm has taken a unique approach to investing by not limiting ourselves to specific industries, market sizes, or types of businesses. While our own industry experience is primarily focused around agriculture, value-added agriculture, technology, and internet based products, we do our due diligence to research and consider any good opportunity.
We prefer to work with startups and early-stage companies that are located in the Midwest. Joining a company at its early stages helps us provide direction and knowledge alongside our investment. It’s our goal to work with companies that focus on building value through their product and services with the goal of building a sustainable long-term businesses.
A company is only as strong as its leader. We look for and invest in those entrepreneurial and leadership-minded individuals. A person with uncommon drive who knows their strengths, embraces their weaknesses, and appreciates feedback and coaching is someone we want to invest in.
Our investment process is simple. Submit your idea for review and we’ll either accept it, tell you it needs more work, or reject it. If your idea is accepted we will help you prepare for a presentation to our investors. If the project needs more work our team can help provide consultation and strategy to prepare for it to be reevaluated.
