The Company is Collaborating with Newlab to Launch the First-of-its-Kind Facility with Office Space and a Community Lab Based in New York City
Vancouver, British Columbia, June 13, 2022 / CNW /– CULT Food Science Corp. (“CULT” or the “Company”) (CSE: CULT) (OTC: CULTF) (FRA: LN0), an innovative investment platform with an exclusive focus on cellular agriculture that is advancing the development of novel technologies to provide a sustainable, environmental, and ethical solution to the global factory farming and aquaculture crises, is pleased to announce that it is joining the Newlab Cellular Agriculture Venture Studio (the “Venture Studio”) in New York City as a partner and advisor. The first-of-its
kind Venture Studio is focused on defining, launching and growing new business-to-businesses ventures in the cellular agriculture space. The Venture Studio will gather and manage a coalition of experts – venture capitalists, civic organizations, not-for-profits and corporations – that can guide and advise on the creation and growth of the new ventures.
Together, CULT and Newlab will work to identify key opportunity areas for new businesses to address significant industry challenges, including but not limited to supply, networks and services. In the event that opportunities for open-source products and platforms may arise, they will be passed onto the “Open CellAg Group”, which is expected to act as a Cellular Agriculture Network of Excellence.
The Venture Studio is seeking people who fit a broader vision of who a venture founder can be: a scientist, inventor or operator interested in building in a highly collaborative environment. Up to three people will have the opportunity to work directly together with the Newlab team over three-to-five months to identify, validate and prioritize businesses.
Entrepreneurs-in-Residence who are selected to join the Venture Studio will be provided with a stipend, strategy and design programming, office space and community lab for a three-to-five month term. The top business(es) will receive funding and support from CULT and Newlab to
launch and grow to the next stage of funding. They will be a part of the Newlab community, will have full access to Newlab’s product realization resources, as well as CULT and Newlab experts and mentors.
“CULT is truly a forward-thinking company and we're thrilled to partner with them to build businesses that will further scale the important work of cellular agriculture. The scale of their network, resources and initiatives in the space are strong assets that will guide the Venture Studio's entity creation toward truly impactful and highly successful opportunities,” said Clair Purcell, Newlab’s Chief Venture Builder.
“The field of cellular agriculture remains open for new innovation but, at the same time, we are facing compounding challenges with global food production and climate change that are all but assured to escalate over the next decade. We choose to act now instead of waiting so that we may address the challenges of the future head-on,” said Lejjy Gafour, Chief Executive Officer of CULT Food Science.
“The Venture Studio with Newlab provides a unique model that fits well with the overall strategy of CULT Food Science – it provides an avenue for new ideas and intellectual property to be developed from the ground up, with skilled experts and an eye for really pushing the boundaries of what has been done to date globally. Between CULT and Newlab, we will be working hard to become a driving force for new innovations in the industry over the coming years,” added Mr. Gafour.
