New Crop Capital (NCC) is a private venture capital fund investing in plant-based and cultured meat, dairy, and egg companies.[1][2] It is known for seeking to disrupt the conventional animal agriculture industry, which it views as environmentally harmful, inefficient, and deleterious to public health and animal welfare.[3][4]

NCC provides early-stage investments––primarily Angel, Seed, and Series A funding––as well as consulting services to companies that facilitate the promotion and sale of plant-based and cultured animal product alternatives.[5] Its investments range from $50,000 to $1,000,000.

History

NCC was formed in January 2016 with three staff members: Investment Manager Chris Kerr and Managing Trustees Bruce Friedrich and Nick Cooney.
