Calling all plant-based, fermentation, and cultured-food 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, plant-based companies around the globe are making headlines - raising mega rounds i.e. Daring Foods just closed $40M Series A and making history i.e. Good Meat's cultured meat is replacing conventional choices in premier restaurant's in Singapore.

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, 18 July 2021 and the programme is due to kick off in September.

Interested founders should 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 in 2018, the Berlin-based ProVeg Incubator has worked with over 50 startups from around the world. Collectively, those startups have raised more than €35 million and are selling products in over 15,000 stores.

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, Formo, Plantcraft, Hooked, Cellular Agriculture, Update Foods, Panvega, Remilk and the nu company.  

Clémence Landeau, Founder of Update Foods, said: “The ProVeg Incubator is the perfect place for food startups to scale. The accelerator programme provides a strong entrepreneurial ecosystem and a supportive but challenging environment, with input from experienced mentors and sharp analysts. When we looked at the previous startups it has supported, the potential of the ProVeg Incubator was immediately clear to us. We are convinced that it is just what we need to reach for the sky.”

Albrecht Wolfmeyer, Head of the ProVeg Incubator, said: “We look for impact-driven founders with innovative, scalable, and defensible technologies and solutions that are backed by a stellar team. Innovative approaches to develop and scale the production of plant-based and cultured meat alternatives and all kinds of fermentation-based protein alternatives are especially exciting. Although we are open to receiving applications across all categories, egg, seafood, chicken and other meat alternatives have a particular strategic focus for us.

Am I eligible?

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
