At the company’s first ever “Demo Day,” Tyson Ventures, the investment arm of Tyson Foods, will be looking for the next solution to advance the company’s sustainability status. The virtual event is for entrepreneurs and startups to show Tyson executives how their innovations could help build a more sustainable food system. 

All participants that sign up will be evaluated against Tyson Ventures’ investment strategy, the technologies they’ve created and the potential of those solutions to help Tyson reach its sustainability goals. Selected companies or entrepreneurs from the initial round will virtually present their solutions to Tyson executives on July 11, 2022. Tyson’s senior leadership team will be ready to invest innovative technologies and partner with entrepreneurs that could help the protein company reach its sustainability goals. 

Examples that executives will be looking for include, but are not limited to, greenhouse gas emission reduction, reducing food waste, animal welfare, regenerative agriculture, packaging, soil health and water management strategies.

“Our ambition is to be the most sustainable and transparent food company in the world, and we believe long-term sustainability will be tied to innovation. We want to play our part and help foster those innovations we think will have the greatest impact to our food system,” stated John R. Tyson, Tyson Ventures President, Equity Venture Partners, and chief sustainability officer of Tyson Foods.

“We are absolutely committed to work toward a more sustainable food future and partner with future visionaries in this space.”

To sign up for Demo Day and learn more about the event, participants should visit Tyson Venture’s website. The deadline to apply is May 15, 2022. 

Tyson’s Ventures’ other investments

Tyson Ventures is known for partnering with innovators it believes will help improve the food industry.

In March 2021, the capital arm invested in a wearable digital technology for the poultry industry created by startup company Iterate Labs. The technology involves an industrial wearable that attaches to plant worker’s gloves. The technology monitors and records worker movement that could cause musculoskeletal injuries and alerts supervisors in real-time.
