Leap Venture Studio announces the eight pet care startups that are joining its fourth cohort in February 2021. The startups – coming from five different countries – were chosen for their unique products and services that are forging new trails in the $100 billion pet care industry.
Each company will work with a curated team of R/GA strategists, technologists, designers, and consultants and receive mentorship from executives at Kinship and Michelson Found Animals. The goal of the program is for each company to enhance their business plans, prepare for fundraising milestones, and establish minimum viable brands. Additionally, each company receives an investment of up to $200,000 upon being accepted into the Studio.
This Leap Venture Studio cohort’s work will culminate in an online pitch event where Studio companies pitch to investors, industry leaders, and the startup community in May.
