Year of Investment 2018

Description of the portfolio company

Led by a team of proven scientists, entrepreneurs, and industry veterans, Enko’s innovative science, agile design, and discovery of new modes of action is producing next-generation crop protection solutions that will overcome critical challenges facing the industry.


Investment rationale

Regulatory pressure and pesticide resistance are pressing issues for farmers today and are driving a need for new & safer crop chemistry, while existing discovery methods have resulted in a very limited number of new products over the past decades. ENKO is leveraging the power of DNA encoded libraries to discover sustainable and more effective small molecule crop protection products.
