Welcome to Truvalu

Truvalu develops fair and inclusive agro and food chains, by supporting innovative and scalable SMEs in emerging markets. An expanding world population, fast-changing dietary habits in emerging markets, and climate change are pushing up food demand and prices, making innovation a necessity and investment in agriculture more and more attractive.

We partner with high-potential entrepreneurs through the different stages of the companies’ life cycle to support them through the pioneering gap. In doing so we create substantial and lasting impact far beyond the subsidized for impact programs. With our partners we form an ecosystem to support agribusiness from startups to scale-ups. We have a global approach, investing in ten selected countries in Asia, East Africa and Latin America.


We practice what we preach and hence operate as entrepreneurs.

Jaap Jan Verboom – Director Truvalu

If I had not participated in Truvalu.startups my company (Kascade) would have died a glorious death. Truvalu.startups opens doors and possibilities that you had never imagined and would otherwise remained closed. My network has grown tremendously.

Hans Simons – Kascade
Innovations without a market make zero impact. Therefore we need to foster and support the great innovations out there to get them to the market, so they can become the change makers of tomorrow.
Walter aan de Wiel – Director Truvalu.startups

Truvalu.startups does what a business accelerator should do. The program pushes you forward in the shortest time possible.
