JOIN THE TERRAFORMING MOVEMENT

Terraforma is the international corporate driven food and agriculture startup accelerator located in Russia. Founded by Russian and German entrepreneurs and integrated in private and public partnerships, we support the innovation activity of established top players and early-stage companies.

WHY

To feed 10 billion people in 2050, with balanced effects on resources and nature.

HOW

Consistently investing in promising startups.

WHAT

Uniting entrepreneurial forces to accelerate top startups in one of the world’s largest agricultural countries.

Feeding the world has always been among the greatest challenges people have faced. But now it has become the greatest challenge of all. Terraforma is a gathering of those who see this challenge as a unique entrepreneurial opportunity and who desire to be among the ones who dare to tackle it.

OUR TEAM

We come from different countries, speak different languages and have different experiences. Some of us have founded numerous startups, raised funding or invested in others. We remember our successes and our failures. We know how our ideas bind and motivate us and how hard it is to change them or even let them go.

Sharing all the experience and supporting promising entrepreneurs fills our lives with meaning. It adds a lot of good to our lives.

In order to combine all the necessary forces, we have established our first address in Moscow, where we are embedded in a vital and international community of startups, experts, global players and investors.

Our programs take place wherever we can work perfectly with our startups, sometimes in Moscow and sometimes at other cities in Russia or internationally with our corporate partners, and where we can find the right infrastructure such as test sites, labs, production or retail locations, crops and cows or just the right community.
