Village by CA North of France is organizing a call for application to innovative startups in order to “Innovate to develop people demand for plant-based proteins”.

Project bearers as well as existing startups of less than 3 years existence are allowed to apply from any European country. Their activity should show a demonstrable level of innovation and fit at any level of the value chain from the field (or the sea) to the plate.

As such, agtechs, foodtechs as well as startups developing new distribution models, community management models or ecological/nutritional footprint indicators or other services set to encourage and motivate people to choose food products which are more balanced with plant-based proteins and which have a smaller ecological footprint are welcome to apply.

The call of application is organized in 3 rounds: application phase, preparation of the final selection (Recommendation phase) and final selection. The final selection will occur in a face to face meeting where the preselected project bearers and startups will pitch a Final selection panel.

Project bearers and startups selected by the Final selection panel will benefit from inclusion in the Village by CA ecosystem along 3 possibilities:

  • Hosting of the startup in the Village by CA accelerator (up to 24 month)
  • Hosting of the Project bearer in the Village by CA incubator (up to 8 month)
  • Inclusion of the startup in a personalized Village by CA non hosted program (up to 3 month).

The announcement of the call for application winners will take place during NutrEvent, the European business convention dedicated to innovation in Food Nutrition and Health (June 14th and 15th).

Inclusion in the Village by CA ecosystem will bring to the selected Participants a number of additional benefits specifically designed by Village by CA Partners in order to amplify the boost to the startup development.
