Partnerships with KWS are a driver of innovation

At KWS, we believe that partnerships are key to facilitate the development and adoption of innovative approaches to improve plant breeding, agriculture methods, and sustainable farming practices.

That is why we work closely with academia, scientific organizations, startups, and industry all over the world to enable and access the latest technologies, know-how, digital solutions, and tools that add value to KWS’s established business in seeds and services.

Under the objective of mutual growth, we create partnerships through joint research projects, license deals, market linkages, and/or financial engagement. To date, we have concluded a myriad of reserach collaborations and realized direct investments in early and later-stage startups, joint ventures, spinouts, and indirect fund investments that strategically fit our portfolio.

Partnering with KWS means moving forward together to achieve the best possible solution.
