Chobani launches new program funding over $150K to sustainable food startups
Chobani CEO Hamdi Ulukaya is no stranger to selflessly helping those in his industry and company. Earlier this year, he announced that employees would be given an 'undefined share' of a 10 percent stake in the company.
Now, he's extending his realm of mentorship to food startups by offering them office space and a $25K grant to participate in what the company has named the Chobani Food Incubator.
Chobani describes itself as a company that aims to produce "delicious, nutritious, natural, and accessible food."
Through the Food Incubator program, the six selected startups will have six months to network, grow, learn and get off the ground with the support (and financial backing, including travel expenses) of Chobani.
Naturally (no pun intended), the companies that were selected had to show that they had "big hearts and ideas follow the path to challenge the food industry, improve broken systems, and make a difference."
Take a look at the 6 companies that were selected below:
Good food is a right, not a privilege--no more artificial, no more exclusive, no more mediocre.
Supporting local businesses and sustainable food through helping other entrepreneurs grow and establish themselves?
That's a feel-good win-win!
