Katrin Burt

Managing Partner

I believe that entrepreneurs and technology innovation have a critical role to play in solving some of the world’s most urgent and complex challenges. The agriculture and food sectors represent vast commercial market opportunities and have the potential to lead meaningful improvements to both the world’s natural environment and to human health. 

Katrin joined Grosvenor Food &AgTech (formerly known as Wheatsheaf Group) as an Executive Director in 2019. Katrin has been a venture investor since 2004, including 10 years as a partner with a venture capital technology fund in the US and five years at Syngenta’s corporate venture capital group. 

Prior to 2004, she worked with HSBC in both the UK and Japan in various trading and business development roles. 

Katrin graduated from Somerville College, University of Oxford, with an MA in Mathematics; holds an Executive MBA from Duke University; and an MSc in Microsystems and Nanotechnology from Cranfield University.
