The Vegan economy is rising

Catalyze the vegan economy

Current animal-based production and market practices are widespread and unsustainable. A pound of beef can take 1,800 to 4,000 gallons of water to produce. According to the Water Footprint Network, the average water footprint per gram of protein of beef is six times larger than for legumes. The future is vegan. It’s time to invest in sustainable, humane food production. Maximize the impact of your investments by joining the Vegan Investment Club.

How our Club works

We have 3 phases

Phase 1: A limited number of members like you join the club to be notified when the first vegan company launches a campaign.
Phase 2: Selected companies invite club members to invest in their company at the start of their crowdfunding campaigns, before the general public.
Phase 3: Once the first vegan company succeeds in its crowdfunding campaign, club members will receive exclusive opportunities every month to invest in high-potential, vegan companies in the early stages of equity crowdfunding campaigns.

Expect to see this club grow by tens of thousands of new members worldwide! Together, we’re unifying to make the vegan investing movement a powerful force. Join us and share with your networks, friends, and communities to grow the movement toward a vegan economy.

"Let food be thy medicine."


We’re a group of vegan entrepreneurs and social impact investors who believe that the world needs more plant-based companies to lead the charge in environmentally and ethically-responsible ways. Our vision is to unite like-minded investors from around the world to build a vegan economy through equity crowd-funding campaigns, regardless of how much or how little individuals are able to contribute. There’s power in numbers and the most powerful way to create a vegan economy is through unified action.
