Our Mission

Our mission is to drive the food and materials technology revolution by replacing animals in the supply chain. CPT Capital partners with visionary companies using cutting-edge technologies to shape the future of protein.

One of the greatest challenges facing the world today is how to ensure that the growing population has access to sufficient, sustainable and nutritious food. The global food system is under increasing pressure in meeting this challenge within planetary boundaries, and business as usual is not an option. Current levels of animal protein production and consumption are unsustainable across the board, causing wide-ranging detrimental impacts on the environment and public health, while putting pressure on scarce resources.

Alternative proteins offer a solution to this challenge, and CPT Capital partners with founders and companies using cutting-edge technologies to create the proteins of the future. As the Green Revolution of the 1950s and 60s enabled a dramatic rise in agricultural production, we are now at the foothills of a food and materials technology revolution. This new revolution will enable the creation of animal protein without the animal, and power a step change in efficiency.

CPT Capital aims to drive this revolution through strategic investment.

What we look for

Ultimately CPT Capital makes investment decisions based on the potential for extraordinary capital growth. We invest all the way from pre-seed onwards (ideally getting involved from pre-seed to Series B) with a view to continually backing the company all the way – be that to a sale, an IPO, or longer term.

Specifically, we look for the following in the businesses we back:

01.

Round Stage

We invest from pre-seed onwards (ideally getting involved from pre-seed to Series B) with a view to continually backing the company all the way - be that to a sale, an IPO, or longer term.

02.

Founding Team

We look for passionate, dynamic founders with a strong vision and desire to be part of the future of protein.

03.

Focus

The company’s product should directly replace an animal-derived product and have a tech or IP-protected element.

04.

Geography

We are open to opportunities across the globe, and are actively looking to expand the geographic representation of our portfolio, which is primarily US-focused at present.
