Why we led Phytoform’s seed round

Today, we are excited to announce our investment in Phytoform, with participation from our friends at Pale Blue Dot and Wireframe Ventures.

At Eniac, we are big believers in the future of sustainable agriculture withexisting bets that include Vence (regenerative agriculture for cattle) and Iron Ox (AI autonomous farming). As the climate crisis looms, we’ve looked closely at how computational genomics can be leveraged to reduce food waste and bring higher quality diverse produce to market. Our investment in Phytoform sits at the intersection of our work in sustainability and agriculture, along with our long-time interest in genomics. Phytoform is Eniac’s first bet in computational biology, and we look forward to more investments in the category.
