A group of Canadian agri-business partners has announced the launch of a new private equity fund, focused on investment in Canadian ag innovation, small business growth and entrepreneurship.

The new $23.5-million Ag Capital Canada (ACC) fund is aimed at “discovering, developing and nurturing Canadian agricultural businesses through capital investment, business-management mentorship, and entrepreneurial expertise“.

The ACC fund was launched in March, and is managed by John Lansink (Tillsonburg ON), John DePutter (London ON), Greg Andrukow (Camrose AB), Jay Bradshaw (Guelph ON) and Michael Perovich (Tillsonburg ON). Together, they bring a wealth of knowledge and experience in agriculture, finance and marketing.

By focusing on the limitless potential of Canadian innovation, invention and technological advancement, Ag Capital Canada looks forward to making a lasting contribution to the growth of Canadian agricultural entrepreneurship,” Bradshaw, who comes with 36 years of experience in Canadian agriculture, told us.

The ACC fund management team will be further strengthened by a diverse array of skills and expertise from limited partner investors.

A list of investors includes down-to-earth farmers, entrepreneurs, ag-business folks and others from across Canada.

This will provide Ag Capital Canada with a unique mix of industry perspectives and specialties, with shared values of entrepreneurialism and hard work.

The fund managers are also proud to welcome Farm Credit Canada (FCC) as a major limited partner investor.
