PARCAE INVEST

Innovation with a purpose, build companies that change the value chain of food

*In ancient Roman religion and myth, the Parcae were the female personifications of destiny who directed the lives of humans and gods. They are often called the Fates in English

ABOUT PARCAE

PARCAE was founded on the basis of a simple observation:

 the current food system is not sustainable and does not help people to become healthier. The food value chain has a profound impact on our planet. Mankind is producing and consuming food on unprecedented scale with an unsustainable footprint and negative health impact. The challenge of our time is not to have supply and demand meet. It has to be met whilst spending far less resources and reduce health issues.

 

WHAT WE DO

At Parcae we will help companies to accelerate their growth by raising promising companies in one place, creating maximum synergy effect in the start- and scale-ups. Specialists will support the multiple ventures and together we build your company.

We believe that the entrepreneurial minds of our time are up for the challenge -  with profitable business models. PARCAE focuses solely on food and agri companies in the beginning and early phase of their existence, with a turnover of between 0.2 mn and 5 mn euro.

 

PARCAE focuses on 4 areas:

 

NUTRITIOUS AND HEALTHY

Providing and promoting the consumption of diverse nutritious and safe foods for a healthy diet.

SOCIAL IMPACT

Minimizing welfare diseases like cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and kidney disorder in order to increase economic and social participation of our population.

SUSTAINABLE

EFFICIENT

OUR TEAM

We know this world. Since our study we have been active in the food and agri world.

That is where our passion and strength lie. And that's what we can help you with.
