Pitch + Plant Announces Finalists for Business Pitching Competition



  • by Peter Manley

Pitch + Plant, the first plant-based business pitching competition in the UK, will be participating in the Plant-Based Business Bootcamp. The event will be taking place on Saturday, July 13th, at the LUSH Studio in Soho, London.

The event, created by the plant-based company Vevolution, has amassed a large following and list of entrants, which is a display of just how many people are interested in building a business ethically. In fact, a total of 50 plant-based companies applied for the plant-based pitching competition.

Damien Clarkson, co-founder of Vevolution, said, "We were overwhelmed by the quality of applications this year, there is an abundance of entrepreneurs creating exciting plant-based businesses that represent a brighter way of living on the planet."

Of the fifty total applicants, only seven plant-based startups have been officially selected to participate in the live event, complete with a live audience and a panel of judges. The seven startups include The Green Grill & The Green Butchers, KINGS, Club Cultured, JACKED, Native Snacks, Well Bean Company, and Five Dot Botanics.

These seven well-known UK startups will be pitching their plant-based business plans to an impressive panel of plant-based judges, including Matthew Glover (Chairman of Veganuary), Swatee Deepak (Director of With and For Girls at Purposeful), Damien Clarkson (Co-founder of Vevolution), Grace Regan (Founder of Spicebox), and Jonathan Petrides (Co-founder of allplants).

Once the winner is selected, he/she will win a seed investment in the startup, which will be made by Vevolution as part of an expansion of how it supports the growth of plant-based businesses.

"We look forward to investing in the winners of Pitch + Plant and helping them on their entrepreneurial journey,” says Vevolution Co-founder Clarkson.
