The selected ventures will participate in a five-day, in-person summit hosted by Chipotle in Newport Beach, Calif., with direct access to mentors who will focus on key areas of scale like strategy, leadership, finances, and systems. Attendees will also receive individualized investor introductions throughout the program and Chipotle VIP cards, which will provide real food to fuel work sessions all year long. In 2019, Chipotle selected eight growth-stage food-focused ventures to participate in the inaugural program, including AgVoice, American Ostrich Farms, Asarasi, GrubTubs, ImpactVision, Novolyze, Rex Animal Health, and Sophie’s Kitchen Plant-Based Seafood. “The Aluminaries Project is the first accelerator program we’ve seen that emphasizes the accelerations of sustainable business practices,” said Eugene Wang, founder of Sophie’s Kitchen Plant-Based Seafood. “As mission-driven entrepreneurs, we believe this program helped us strengthen our value and stay true to our purpose.” Submissions for the Chipotle Aluminaries Project 2.0 become the property of Chipotle and will not be returned. Finalists will be selected by Uncharted in its discretion.
