Uncaged Capital is a social venture capital firm formed to grow the vegan materials industry. By creating innovations to replace materials made from animals, we decrease the enormous environmental impact and suffering created by animal farming. We will fund start-ups creating materials to replace leather, fur, wool, down, silk, and exotic skins in the fashion, home goods, and automotive industries. From making leather out of mushrooms to growing silk in a lab, the vegan materials industry is no longer defined by the pleather of the 80s. These advancements are changing the materials industry, and we plan to expedite their growth.
- note - we do NOT want the brand to have an "animal" or "vegan" message. The name has a double-meaning of uncaging these innovations and uncaging animals, but the animal message is subtle part of the name. We need the logo to appeal to general investors that might not care about the animal suffering.
