CNH Industrial announces the formation of its strategic investment arm, CNH Industrial Ventures. This is a further step in the company’s industry role to accelerate time-to-market for valuable innovations that will boost customer productivity and advance its ESG targets.
With the aim of strengthening the company’s innovative position in the agriculture and construction segments, these investments and collaborations will focus on areas including Alternative Propulsion, Digital, Autonomy, Robotics and other relevant disruptive technologies.
CNH Industrial Ventures is the latest means by which the company seeks to capitalize on its influence and expertise to attract collaboration with tomorrow’s big thinkers, providing access to expertise and resources.

In turn, CNH Industrial provides demonstrated value in supporting the market validation and growth of its partners.
“The launch of CNH Industrial Ventures is an exciting milestone that further enhances our commitment to innovation,” said Michele Lombardi, Senior Vice President of Corporate Development at CNH Industrial. “With a strong partnership approach in mind, we aim to leverage our extensive competencies, market reach and asset base to help rapidly growing companies that are redefining the future of agriculture and construction. This structure will continue to expand our ability to increasingly deliver customer-inspired innovation, enhancing their noble work of feeding and building a more sustainable world.”
