Tyson Ventures seeking applicants for virtual “Demo Day” focused on sustainable food start-ups

Tyson Ventures, the venture capital arm of Tyson Foods, is accepting applications through May 15 for its first ever pitch event for sustainability entrepreneurs and start-ups.

The Tyson “Demo Day” will be held virtually on July 11, and selected participants will be invited to demonstrate how their solutions could help create a more sustainable food system. The goal of the day is to identify and ultimately invest in breakthrough, sustainable technologies that can help Tyson Foods reach its sustainability goals.

At the July event, the selected companies will virtually pitch their solutions to a group of Tyson Foods executives. Following “Demo Day,” selected start-ups will have the opportunity to engage with Tyson Foods’ senior leadership and partner with the company on breakthrough ideas to help advance sustainability across the company.
