With a strong commitment to the future of food that is both good for people and good for the planet, Pascual Innoventures together with Eatable Adventures proudly announce the launch of Mylkcubator, the first global incubation program for cellular agriculture technologies in the dairy industry.
What is Pascual Innoventures?
Pascual Innoventures is a different model of Corporate Venture Capital. It aims to identify and develop new businesses giving a better future for food. It’s an independent society from the company Pascual that looks to find new external opportunities.
Pascual Innoventures is based on 4 pillars: Explore, Invent, Invest and Accelerate.
What sets them apart is the addition of inventing and investing. Indeed, most investment programs are purely financial in the agrifood industry. Innoventures’ mission is to help startups in early stages to develop and grow. Thus, becoming an accelerator partner that will accompany the process from development to conception to the search for new investors.
The ones behind this program are Gabriel Torres Pascual, third generation of the Pascual family, director of Pascual Innova. In addition to Sejal Ravji, a biochemical engineer from University College of London and doctor in rheology, director of Pascual Innoventures. Both have impressive international backgrounds and have gained extensive work experience in different fields before joining this adventure.
What is Mylkcubator?
Mylkcubator is the first international incubator focused on the detection and development of highly innovative startups specialized in the application of new technologies to the dairy industry value chain.
The program will be launched on an annual basis starting in 2021. It will feature “high-performance” content focused on building strong technology-based startups providing answers to the challenges in the dairy industry.
The first edition of Mylkcubator will last 6 months, from selection to the demo day. The goal is to enroll 10 startups, entrepreneurs, or scientific projects, with innovative solutions in the cellular agriculture spectrum for the dairy industry. Moreover, these should fall into the following technologies: cell based, fermentation based and applied technologies. For further information, all the details about the program are available on the official website mylkcubator.com.
Pascual Innoventures counts on the support of Eatable Adventures for this launch. The latter being one of the top three global food-tech accelerators, deriving from their continued strategic partnership after the first plant-based dairy challenge launched in 2020.
