Through VOYAGERS we’re building a diverse, international community of mission-led people working on the future of food — from plant-based and cultivated alternatives to meat to synthetic biology and fermentation-based dairy substitutes. The goal is to build trusted friendships that accelerate progress and to support each other – through online networking but also through dinners and not-for-profit weekend adventures in magical locations. Currently we are starting to grow the group, and welcome applications to join from founders, investors, activists, regulators and others working primarily in food tech. Current members are based in countries including Germany, Israel, the UK and the US. Membership is free and we run all activities at cost.
The ambitious and mission-driven startups and organisations represented in the group include Legendairy Foods, Hoxton Farms, Better Dairy, Multus Media, vly, Entocycle, Stockeld Dreamery, HigherSteaks, BioFeyn and the Future Food Institute.

In due course we will organise a networking adventure for our food-tech community. Here are examples of other VOYAGERS adventures.
VOYAGERS was founded by David Rowan, founding editor-in-chief of WIRED UK, who enjoys bringing together people working on impact-led challenges. You can read more about our mission here. The climate-tech group includes startup founders, investors, representatives of international bodies, research scientists and more, from many geographies. There’s no fee to be involved, and we’re experimenting with how we can best help each other out – currently ranging from online workshops to confidential monthly peer-support groups of 8 people that we call VOYAGERS Cabins. We also have a podcast and a Lazy Book Club. In 2020 we launched a $1.5m micro-fund for VOYAGERS members to support ambitious health-tech startups in the community, offering founders access to the group’s deep networks and knowledge (current portfolio here – already showing a 5x return…). We plan similarly to build a climate-tech community micro-fund.
