By 2027, the plant-based industry will be worth $74 billion dollars, yet less than 3% of all capital in the world is invested into female founders and less than 1% is invested into female founders of color. We’re going to change that.
We are excited to announce the launch of VWS Pathfinder, the world’s first female founder summit and pitch competition dedicated exclusively to plant-based innovation. We invite you to join us virtually on Saturday, December 5th, 2020 for this worldwide event.
Featuring the world’s leading voices building the future of plant-based innovation, join us for a full day of CEO panels, founder chats, and breakout sessions to learn everything you need to know about how to build your business, accelerate your growth, and become a founder in the plant-based industry. With more than two dozen of the world’s leading founders and CEOs, Pathfinder will feature Miyoko Schinner, CEO of Miyoko’s Creamery, Denise Woodard, CEO of Partake Foods, and Daniella Monet, Co-founder of Kinder Beauty Box, as well as renowned venture capitalists including Matilda Ho, Managing Director of Bits x Bites, Lisa Feria, CEO of Stray Dog Capital, Regina Hecker, Partner at Blue Horizon Ventures, and many more.
Like all VWS events, Pathfinder is designed to amplify and elevate the voices of female leaders working to build a plant-based future. We invite attendees from all backgrounds to attend the program and learn more about how they can find their path in this fast-growing industry, whether they are brand new to the plant-based space or a seasoned veteran looking to break into this industry.
Are you ready to disrupt the future of food, fashion, beauty, and more? Pitch your plant-based product live to win over $50,000 in cash and services!
No borders. No barriers. All female-identifying founders across the world are invited to apply. Deadline to apply is October 23, 2020 at 23:59 PT.
