  • Founders Factory, a global company builder and early-stage investor offers founders capital, operational support from a team of 100 hands-on experts, and unrivalled access to industry leaders from across our corporate partners. Since 2015, Founders Factory's 300 portfolio companies - 80 built in the Studio - have raised $720mm follow-on funding from notable investors, including NfX, Coatue, Forerunner, Tencent, Mubadala and firstminute Capital.

    Our latest concept in the Mission Studio (backed by Nesta) is “Sexy Greens”.

    🧐 What's the concept at high level?

    What if we could change the food retail environment to make distribution easier for fresh food businesses?

    Our vision is to create a network of fresh food automated “micro markets” underlying an engaging digital customer experience. The ambition for this venture is to be:

    • A new retail channel for food producers and brands capturing real-time insights
    • Streamlining access into automated-retail as a distribution channel by broking between site locations, food producers and consumers
    • A simple way for employers or organisations to subsidise healthy food for their teams
    • 24/7 access to extensive range of fresh and healthy food brands
    • Distributed national footprint in high traffic locations
    • Promotions, loyalty and rewards capabilities
    • Fully managed service; tech, maintenance and stock

    ⏰ Why now?

    The new normal after lockdown has created new opportunities. More gig workers eating on the go, WFH making canteens obsolete, entrepreneurs spinning up food businesses looking to scale - Covid has changed how, where and when people eat. With this venture we can connect the dots to succeed in a new food environment.

    🍏 The Impact

    This concept has the potential to shift the balance of food availability, with the potential to impact a broad cross section of society by providing better access to convenient affordable fresh food instead of unhealthy snack bars.
