Thirteen impact-driven startups with innovative animal-free food and ingredient solutions will pitch their startups to a panel of judges, as well as investors, corporates and fellow startups, later this week as the ninth edition of the ProVeg Incubator comes to a close.
Based in Berlin, the renowned ProVeg Incubator is the world’s first alt-protein accelerator, exclusively supporting companies that are transforming the global food system. This latest cohort was announced back in October, with the Demo Day marking the culmination of a 12-week programme of learning, networking, and funding.
The Demo Day, which will take place online, is being made public for the first time. It will take place on Thursday, 15 December, from 4pm to 6.30pm CET. If you’d like to attend, please register online at: https://lnkd.in/etSu8xez.
