At ProVeg Incubator we work with many inspiring individuals, it’s one of the best parts of what we do here. Our startup founders have chosen to dedicate their time to building companies that benefit people and the planet. They come from all over the world, all walks of life, and they all have something valuable to offer. However, in honour of International Women’s Day today (March 8) we want to celebrate one group of entrepreneurs in particular: female founders.
In the one year since the ProVeg Incubator launched, we have supported over 30 startups. We are proud to say, that many have been founded by women or have female leaders on the founding team. Here are four of the most exciting companies led by women that we have worked with.
Cheese the Queen
Vera Tinkova established her company Cheese the Queen after being inspired to transform the global food culture. Using fermented, aged cashews she has developed a range of superfood cheeses. They are all 100% plant-based, high in protein, and enriched with probiotics. “I strive to give people the possibility to experience new ways of indulgence while still respecting the planet”, says Vera.
