The TMI Proof of Concept Fund Flevoland of the regional development company Horizon Flevoland and the Goeie Grutten Impact Fund support the growth of Gentle Green in the current phase of market introduction through financing and participation respectively.
Kee Koopmans of Goeie Grutten: "We see this innovation as a breakthrough in greenhouse cultivation and a solution to the so important and urgent problem of sustainable food production. This solution makes cultivation possible with much less energy, water and pesticides. On the one hand, the Gentle Green system has a major impact on healthy food and fully sustainable vegetable production and on the other hand, it is a key to profitability of growers. The latter is essential in securing the future production and thus availability of the healthiest food category, vegetables".
Eric Bos Waaldijk of Horizon Flevoland: "Gentle Green is the perfect example of the type of initiatives that the TMI POC Fund is happy to help realize with its financing: a Flevoland-based company with an intrinsically motivated team that makes an important contribution to global sustainable food production with its smart innovation".
