Congratulations to Vence!
I’m excited to share the news that our portfolio company Vence has been acquired by Merck Animal Health (a division of Merck & Co.). The deal was announced a couple weeks ago, but I wanted to write a bit more of our history with Vence.
I first learned about the company in 2017, during a deep tech-focused tour of Boston. During a partnership meeting with Flextronics, they mentioned a cattle management startup called Vence, and — since I’d spent quite a bit of time digging into the sustainable agriculture space — I was excited enough about the idea that I had to crash their meeting.
