Helix Fund

Investing for the Future

helix fund


The Helix Fund, established in 2010, is St. Louis County’s Venture Capital Fund to provide seed capital to early-stage businesses in the plant and life sciences community. The Helix Fund is evergreen, meaning all gains are reinvested back into the Fund to provide for future investments. Because deals for the Fund come through trusted partners, the Fund requires all companies that receive funding to locate in St. Louis County. Therefore, the maximum level of investment is $250,000. In addition, the focus of the investments expand to include, but is not limited to, plant science and animal health, financial technology, agriculture technology and cyber-technology. All investments are equity-based.

Below is a portfolio list of companies that have received funding from the Helix Fund Investments:
