To invest in exceptional fast-growing businesses of innovative rural economies, driving sustainable growth, climate resilience, and food security.
Vidavo and ZERO Summit co-founded the turningpoint Alliance™ to partner with the most visionary and influential farmers, co-ops, and agribusiness leaders to improve the food system's climate resiliency and carbon footprint at a large scale. Our members represent over 10 million acres of cropland and 15 million tons of livestock, as well as novel input providers, tech innovation firms, food companies, and corporate buyers of carbon credits. Turningpoint also wants to identify, advance, and increase investment in emerging technology innovations critical to industry-wide sustainable growth.

& Food Security
We invest in companies that improve the profitability, productivity, and environmental footprint of rural economies and agrifood value chains. Examples: switching to modern biological inputs, enabling the use of renewable energy, moving to more resource-efficient production processes, increasing access to capital, fostering a circular economy, and lowering transport needs.
The frequency of extreme weather events is increasing, and resources like water and high-productivity soils are scarcer. We invest in companies that improve climate resilience. For example, using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the Internet of Things (IoT) to expand weather and crop insurance access, manage wildfires, or help farmers deal with water scarcity.
