We’re excited to announce that Re-Nuble has been selected as one of the finalists for GrowNY.
Yesterday, New York State Governor Andrew M. Cuomo announced the 20 finalists selected to participate in round two of Grow-NY, a food innovation and agriculture technology business challenge focused on enhancing the emerging food, beverage and agriculture innovation cluster in Central New York, the Finger Lakes and Southern Tier regions.
264 startups applied from 27 countries. In the U.S., 26 states were represented, including 98 entries from New York alone. Re-Nuble was one of the companies that fell under the 29% bucket of applicants that have a female founder as well as the 32% led by a founder from an underrepresented minority group. Come November 2020, we look forward to pitching our business plan at the Grow-NY Food and Ag Summit. Grow-NY will award a total of $3 million in prize money to seven winners who will be required to make a positive economic impact in the Grow-NY region by spurring job growth and connecting with local industry partners.
Our company was birthed in New York City, and so we feel strongly about giving back to all the people and communities that have supported us thus far. As Gov. Cuomo said, “New York State is committed to supporting our world-renowned food and agricultural industry,". Seeing the state’s commitment towards propelling further the food and agriculture industry certainly inspires even further to work even harder towards achieving our mission to help communities and farms around the world reimagine food waste by transforming it into an important nutrient for closed-loop agriculture.
