AppHarvest raises $28M as Martha Stewart & Impossible Foods’ CFO join board

High-tech greenhouse startup AppHarvest has closed a $28 million Series C funding, added some big names to its board, and created a new chief people officer position.
Narya, the new venture capital firm co-founded by author of best-selling novel Hillbilly Elegy J.D. Vance and Colin Greenspon as well as backed by leading entrepreneur and venture capitalist Peter Thiel, led the investment round with participation from existing investors ValueAct Capital’s Spring Fund, Revolution’s Rise of the Rest Seed Fund, and Equilibrium, which has provided nearly $100 million in project financing to date.
