About Ashfount

what we do

Ashfount Investments is a small, UK based and family owned investment company. The firm builds US-based businesses in the regenerative food systems and farm space. Our investment strategy is to create a diverse portfolio of enterprises, ranging from actual farms and ranches, to media and e-commerce companies.

The company is run by Sebastian Sauerborn, a serial entrepreneur from Germany who has a lot of business experience in Europe and the United States under his belt (including owning ranches in Texas and New Mexico).

Alongside our own projects we invest in related initiatives and services.

Invest

Get Involved in Regenerative Agriculture in the US

All Ashfount businesses are designed to grow organically and with our own money. Therefore, we are not actively seeking investment for any of our own portfolio companies.

If you are an investor who wants to get actively involved in the thriving regenerative agriculture space, we have an idea: Can you contribute at least $1,000,000 to a regenerative agriculture farming or food venture? Then why not build your own, and have us help you making it into a success? Why become a minority stakeholder in some third party startup where you have no real influence? It’s much more satisfying do make your own imagination become a reality and create a lasting business and legacy.

We’d love to help you find and develop that farming, ranching or food business opportunity. The one you always dreamed of moulding with your own hands and vision. For a small equity stake and the usual management fees, we are happy to contribute our expertise, experience and access to our network. We look forward to a long term collaboration that will get your regenerative agriculture business built and will make it thrive.
