Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $20,000 to the Vegan Women Summit to support a pitch competition for female founders in the plant- and cell-based space. The Vegan Women Summit aims to use the competition to support early-stage female founders, particularly women of color, by connecting them with investors and publicizing their startups.

This follows our January 2020 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
