Vevolution, a London-based private company supporting plant-powered business, has officially launched a new fintech platform for plant-based and cell-based startups to connect with investors on a global scale.
Since October, the platform has been running in BETA. It has reached over 290 live deals for leading plant-based industry investors such as the Blue Horizon Corporation, New Crop Capital/Unovis, and Veg Capital.
In the years of producing media and holding physical events, Vevolution discovered that the platform has experienced immediate growth and success powered by the strong startup community. The success was entirely organic and shows the need for a fintech platform that links smart money to entrepreneurs.
A powerful leadership team, including the Vevolution founders Judy Nadel and Damien Clarkson, together with Michiel van Deursen, a successful tech entrepreneur, and vegan investor, has pioneered the fintech platform.
“The new Vevolution platform levels the playing field and gives all startups in the plant-based and cell-based space the opportunity to speak to impact-driven investors wanting to back great founders and the companies that are changing the world,” said Judy Nadel and Damien Clarkson about their mission.
“We believe in the power of entrepreneurs to transform the world, this technology is bringing people together in a democratic way that enables the best startups to shine and find their ideal partners,” they added.
Michiel Van Deursen commented, “It was time for a vegan fintech startup to emerge and build high-performance technology to accelerate the important work that startups and investors are doing to transform the economy. For me to be back in the tech-world where I originally started out is really exciting, it is merging my passion for veganism with building technology platforms to change the world.”
Vevolution supports inclusivity, so the membership is currently free for startups. The company has started accepting sign-ups from startups and investors.
