As the world experiences a plant-based revolution, Pitch + Plant run a unique pitching competition to win investment, crowdfunding and product stocking.
According to a poll commissioned by the Vegan Society, Britain’s vegan population has increased from 150,000 to 542,000 in just 10 years, alongside a vegetarian population of 1.14 million. Crowdcube have recently funded four fantastic plant-based start-ups, which are leading the way in this new sector of businesses.
And they’ve partnered with Pitch + Plant, the UK’s first plant-based pitching competition, so you can pitch your plant-based startup to a panel of plant-based entrepreneurs for the chance to win up to £100k in investment from BRAN Investments, a listing on Crowdcube, and product stocking in Revital.
Last year’s winner was Optiat, a company that uses coffee grounds from London’s cafes and transforms them into award-winning beauty products, Optiat’s handmade cosmetics are distributed in seven countries with retailers such as Whole Foods, Planet Organic, and Topshop. The company then went on to raise over £200k from 377 investors in a Crowdcube campaign in February this year.
Pitch + Plant runs in partnership with ethical investors BRAN Investments, equity crowdfunding platform Crowdcube and media company BRIGHT.
Pitch + Plant is taking place at the Plant-Based Business Bootcamp an event powered by Vevolution in partnership with BRIGHT.
