Regenerative Agriculture, Biodiversity, and Apparel

Tin Shed Ventures® is Patagonia’s corporate venture capital fund that, like our parent company, is solely focused on saving our home planet. Tin Shed contributes to this mission by investing a portion of Patagonia’s profits into startups that can provide systemic and globally scalable solutions for the land, water, air, and biodiversity crises underpinning climate change. We specifically focus on solutions in the sectors we know best – food, apparel, and protecting natural ecosystems — which allows us to add the most value to our portfolio companies.  We hope the joint value we create with our portfolio companies will yield returns that allow us to give back to our sole limited partner, our home planet.
