Calling all food and food tech startups: apply to the ProVeg 2021 accelerator 🌱

It’s fair to say that plant-based and cultivated foods are having more than just a moment. This is an industry that’s thriving worldwide.

The plant-based food market is expected to reach a value of $74 billion USD by 2027. Meanwhile, Singapore has approved the world’s first sales of clean meat products.

Globally, there is an increasing number of new companies attempting to capitalise on the growth of this space - and with good reason. However, even with a great idea and a stellar founding  team, it is difficult to achieve startup success, without the right support and connections.

That’s where the ProVeg Incubator comes in. The ProVeg Incubator is the world’s leading incubator of plant-based and cultivated food startups, and right now, the team is looking for mission-driven entrepreneurs to join its international accelerator programme. 

Founders of food and food tech companies that are developing innovative alternatives to animal-based products, ingredients, and services can apply now to join the Incubator’s next cohort of startups. 

The deadline for applications is Sunday 7 February and the programme is due to kick off in April. Interested founders can apply online at www.provegincubator.com/apply

What’s in it for me?

Startups that are selected to join the ProVeg Incubator are supported with:

  • A 12-week tailor made accelerator programme
  • Up to €200,000 in funding
  • One-on-one expert mentoring
  • Access to the ProVeg Incubator’s extensive networks of industry contacts
  • Marketing, branding, and PR support
  • Lifelong membership of a supportive startup community

Since its launch two years ago, the ProVeg Incubator has supported over 45 startups from across the world. Collectively, the alumni of the Incubator have raised more than €30 million EUR and launched over 100 products.

The Incubator is based in Berlin, Germany, however it supports startups from all across the globe from Russia, to the UK, to Chile, to India. Alumni of the ProVeg Incubator include Better Nature, Vly Foods, Mondarella, Greenwise, Mushlabs, Legendairy Foods, Plantcraft, Cellular Agriculture, Panvega, and the nu company.  

Piero Brunetti, Founder of Mondarella, says: “The Proveg Incubator is the best way to accelerate your business. The Incubator team introduced us to crucial mentors, investors, and buyers from the food industry, who it would have otherwise been impossible to meet. We are now selling in supermarkets across Europe – including Lidl, Kaufland, and Penny”.

Last week, ProVeg International announced that it is partnering with venture capital firm Veg Capital to fund food startups. The partnership has already invested in two alumni companies of the Incubator - Zveetz, a plant-based desserts company from Germany, and Hooked, an alternative seafood company based in Sweden.

At the end of 2020, ProVeg International was also part of a group of investors that invested in the Israeli food tech startup Remilk. The precision fermentation company raised $11.3 million USD to further develop its alternative dairy products. Remilk is one of the ProVeg Incubator’s alumni, having graduated from the accelerator programme last year.

It is important that your startup has the potential to remove animals from the global food system, either with alternatives or supporting technologies. In addition, the ProVeg Incubator looks for companies that:

  • Have a strong founding team
  • Offer impactful and scalable innovations
  • Are defensible from the competition

Albrecht Wolfmeyer, Head of the ProVeg Incubator, says:

“If you bring something new to the table, we’ll be excited about that. At the Incubator, we consider applications from startups working in all product and service categories from fermented dairy to cultivated meat to plant-based fish. For the next round of our programme however, we are particularly interested in startups that are working on chicken, egg, and seafood alternatives. Looking forward, these types of products have the potential to significantly revolutionise the food industry”.

As part of the food awareness organisation, ProVeg, the ProVeg Incubator is committed to the mission of reducing global animal consumption by 50% by the year 2040.
