Seedrs, the crowdfunding platform has agreed partnership terms with plant-based investment marketplace, Vevolution. The aim of this collaboration is to help give a boost to early-stage vegan and plant-based startups.

Success for plant-based startups

We’ve brought regular news of late regarding Seedrs. Initially back in March we found out that three plant-based startups used Seedrs network had become over-funded. And subsequently, another favourite of ours, One Planet Pizza, raised over £150,000 through Seedrs investors to help expand the business. 

But there are many tales of success from this platform. And of course, we can’t forget that it’s not long since Seedrs ran successful campaigns for Allplants, raising £4.5m, £600,000 for The Vegan Kind and £4.4m for THIS

Vevolution is also no stranger to success, having facilitated partial or full funding in 25 plant-based startups, including MeliBio and Evo Foods.  

Perfect partnership

Kirsty Grant, Seedrs Chief Investment Officer commented: “The vegan market is one of the fastest growing sectors in the UK and Europe, with appetite to invest in the sector remaining high.

“Teaming up with the Vevolution team means that entrepreneurs in the space have the ability to source their entire investment needs from investment and market experts.”

Erik Amundson, MD and Co-Founder of Vevolution added: “It’s the perfect partnership. Often companies need the lead investment from Vevolution to get a crowdfunding campaign off the ground.

“We are dedicated to supporting the global movement for plant-powered positive change in the world. To do this we need to connect these exciting startups with smart money. By working in partnership with Seedrs we are broadening the access to investors from our network of angel investors and Seedrs community of retail investors that believe in the movement.”
