recommended LEAH Labs where Jon is Co-Founder
I am co-Director at Ag Startup Engine, a Midwest seed fund aimed at funding early stage AgTech companies in the Midwest. At Ag Startup Engine, we are uniquely focused on the success of early, seed-stage companies. LEAH Labs is our eighth investment. We hold monthly roundtable discussions for our portfolio businesses to interact and learn from each other. It also provides a time for sharing successes and challenges in a supportive group environment. Additionally, Ag Engine’s reach to other investment groups is broad.
It is our goal to help LEAH Labs build a pathway to gaining additional investors (Series A). We chose to fund LEAH Labs because we know 6,000,000 dogs die of cancer every year in the United States alone and the market is ripe for innovative, high-tech solutions. LEAH Labs uses licensed, patent-pending technology that enables reprogramming immune cells into cancer fighting machines.
