The Lever China Alternative Protein Fund is open to aspiring entrepreneurs, early stage startups, and early growth stage companies anywhere in the country. Our typical check size is 350,000-2 million RMB, with the potential for follow-on funding up to 35 million RMB from Lever VC. Our affiliated Brinc Accelerator program is an optional add-on that entrepreneurs and startups can go through in exchange for a portion of the investment amount and equity.
Pitch decks and proposals for direct investment and for the accelerator program are welcomed on an ongoing basis. We encourage entrepreneurs to reach out early, as we have the flexibility to support and incubate entrepreneurs from day one and assist with strategic planning and development of the company.
In addition to providing capital we leverage our combined 15 years experience investing in the alternative protein sector, as well as the reach of our official partners (see below) and our broad network of contacts in the food and investment sectors, to provide our portfolio companies with hands-on support in areas including the following.
