Taizo Son's Mistletoe has launched Gastrotope in India in partnership with Gurgaon-based GSF Accelerator and Indo-Japan business consultancy Infobridge. Taizo is SoftBank Group’s founder Masayoshi Son’s younger brother. 

 

This is Mistletoe's fourth investment in India after Innerchef, Ninjacart and Kisan Network. 

 

The newly launched accelerator Gastrotope will focus on sustainable ideas and models in the ‘farm-to-fork’ value chain. It plans to create an agriculture and food-tech enabled industry ecosystem throughout this value chain and invest in startups that can add value at various stages, starting with farmers and moving to food transportation, processing and delivery to consumption.
