The more focus, the more value we can add. ProteinX Startup Acceleration [PxSA] focuses on startup teams that are primarily driven by food scientists, working to develop technologies to make animal protein obsolete.
We have been there and done that; therefore we made it our mission to put together the right "ingredients" [PxSA] in a hands-on program, and take food scientists from 0 to 10.
While it’s easier than ever to start a company, access to outcome-oriented methodologies, seasoned mentors, and influential value-added business partners remain unevenly distributed. [PxSA] went the extra mile to provide all three components in a single startup program.
ProteinX curates and provides access to program participants to a mission-driven global partner network made of ag and food:
PxSA accelerates the development of seed-stage ventures that are building technology to developed next-gen, non-animal-based food. We purposely provide access to an industry-specific, curated network of mentors, channel partners, customers, and investors. The program is result-driven, measured, and leverages tools that guide teams towards getting traction, customers, and fundraising.
Tommaso Di Bartolo, founder, and CEO at Awesm Ventures, along with industry fellows, Jinesh Shah, serial entrepreneur, YCombinator-Alum, advisor, and mentor to several Alt-Protein startups, Navneet Deora, Ph.D., food engineer with a Ph.D. from Indian Institute of & IT, host entrepreneurs Joshua Nixon, co-founder and CTO of Prime Roots, and Dror Tamir, Co-Founder & CEO at Hargol. Will they see each other again?
The ProteinX Startup Acceleration Curriculum was developed in collaboration with some of Silicon Valley's most experienced entrepreneurs, ivy league faculty members, and seasoned startup mentors, that have dedicated decades to help other entrepreneurs succeed. The Curriculum is the optimized result of lessons learned throughout other non-ag-and-food focused, Silicon Valley based startup acceleration programs such as The Google Launchpad, Draper University, The Alchemist Accelerator, GSVlabs and others.
As a mission-oriented, niche accelerator, we do not care about quantity but quality. We filter admissions to increase the odds of success. If you too are working on fostering transformative innovation to make non-animal products, we'd be curious to hear from you
We got some answers!
