Jim Schultz Founder of Open Prairie ventures

I really enjoyed the chance to interview Jim Schultz. Jim’s passion for entrepreneurship and building businesses was born of lessons learned within a family of global entrepreneurs dating back to the creation of the family seed company in 1903. He has carried those lessons throughout his twenty year career as an advisor and investor.

Jim has played an active role in a multitude of agriculture businesses, including operating experience with the Brazilian-unit of the family soybean business and a farmland syndication business which he co-founded. Today, he is Founder and Managing Partner of Open Prairie Ventures and invests in ag-tech businesses with disruptive technologies.

Open Prairie Ventures is a venture capital firm focused on investing in early and growth-stage Midwest-based companies in the ag-tech and life science sectors.

Today Open Prairie ventures is a dynamic force in supporting start up activity in the Mid-West and is engaged in transactions that are on par with any VC in the country. To watch the entire interview with Jim Schultz CLICK HERE
