Pomona Impact

In the last six years, Pomona Impact has completed 22 investments in 20 companies, achieving a combination of solid financial returns and impact. Pomona Impact is in the process of increasing funds for the Fund of Pomona Impact II, LP (FIP) to increase the capital that we will utilize to support scalable small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) which are prepared to create high social and/or environmental impact.

Why AgTech?

In Central America, approximately 30% of jobs and more than 30% of GDP is dependent on agriculture. Yet there is currently a lack of leadership and support focused on agricultural entrepreneurship and innovation in the region.

This lack of resources has a substantial impact. Some of the most significant consequences include:

  • Small producers are increasingly falling behind in productivity levels compared to larger local and international producers that have better access to the latest technology and larger markets.
  • Central America is one of the regions in the world that is more susceptible to climate change; the use of agricultural technology is the best way to prepare for and mitigate the harm that these changes will continue to cause....

Objectives

Our principal goal is to catalyze innovation and entrepreneurship in the agricultural sector in Central America through building skills and creating community and investment.

Our objectives are the following:

  • To create a community of businesses that are better prepared to receive investment through the Bootcamp, Incubator, and Accelerator programs.
  • To connect investors with entrepreneurs in the region.
  • To be leaders in the entrepreneurial AgTech sector in Central America.
