The vegan entrepreneurs network is dedicated to people who are hungry for change. We are a community of passionate entrepreneurs, vegan startup founders and people with an entrepreneurial mindset wanting to challenge the status quo across all industries ripe for plant-based disruption.
We organize regular networking events for (future) entrepreneurs and people interested in plant-based entrepreneurship. Through our events we initiate conversations, boost entrepreneurial power and help you to connect with like-minded people. Occasionally, we invite dedicated speakers who share their knowledge and experience and are happy to answer your questions about the vegan startup industry. Currently, regular events take place in Berlin, Zurich and Rotterdam.
Join the vegan entrepreneurs network and meet like-minded people in a relaxed atmosphere.
We are open for suggestions if you have ideas or wishes for this group.
