FoodFutureCo: A Scale-Up Accelerator

Episode: 138

FoodFutureCo is the first Scale-Up Accelerator for established yet small organizations that are providing unique products and solutions across our food system. Unlike traditional accelerators FoodFutureCo (@foodfutureco) works with companies that have some proof of concept, that are on track to grossing more than $1 million annually, and helps them “scale-up” to the next stage of growth. Focus areas include: consumer products, local food, plant-based food, sustainable seafood, ag tech, food tech and food waste. On this episode we talk with Shen Tong (@shentong), founder and managing partner of FoodFutureCo, and two members of Cohort 3. Romy Raad (@romyr001) co-founder of superfood beverage Metabrew (@themetabrew), and Hunter Bryson, co-founder of mushroom products Shroom Snacks (@shroomsnack) and Jewel of the Forest. This episode is sponsored by Alaska Seafood (@alaskaseafood).
