To make a significant contribution to the fight against climate change and build a sustainable food system
To invest in game-changing technologies that will advance the next agro-industrial revolution
Vidavo and ZERO Summit co-founded the turningpoint Alliance™ to partner with the most visionary and influential farmers, co-ops, and agribusiness leaders to decarbonize the food systems 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 decarbonization.

Sustainable Food Systems
& Carbon Efficiency
We invest in startups that help improve the productivity and carbon footprint of the agro-industrial value chain. Examples: enabling the use of renewable energy, moving to more resource-efficient production processes, switching to natural inputs, fostering a circular economy, and lowering transport needs.
Climate change is increasing the frequency of extreme weather events. We invest in increasing 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.
