The European Investment Bank Institute acts as a catalyst for economic and social development within EU member states. Once a year, they hold a Social Innovation Tournament that recognizes and supports the best European social entrepreneurs.
Wholi has been selected among 14 other finalists to compete for a €50.000 and €20.000 grant, respectively, and access to a strong network of investors, venture philanthropists and foundations who can help the project to scale.
In April we attended a mentoring bootcamp in Amarante, Portugal, and in two days, 24th October, we will attend the final pitch event in Dublin, Ireland.
Wish us luck! :)

We applied to the competition in order to accelerate the launch of our newest product, a kind of meat-alternative made from peas and insect powder.
