Apply to Pitch to Beyond Animal Pitch Event at PBWE
The Beyond Animal Pitch Event is taking place during Plant Based World Expo Europe in London on 15-16 October 2021. The event will host four sessions, during which entrepreneurs from the alternative-protein space will have the chance to pitch in front of an audience of motivated investors and a panel of some of the most active investors in this space. 
Attendees will be live in person at the Beyond Animal Pitch Event and online, with the event being livestreamed on the Beyond Animal platform for global reach.
Companies (start-ups and scale-ups) eligible to pitch are those whose products and services accelerate the transition away from the use of animals. The pitch sessions are grouped by size of deal and stage of company, with the final session on Saturday focusing on seeding start-ups.
