These ventures have been with Accelerate Cambridge for over a year, and have already raised a seed round.


Entomics aims to convert food waste into energy. Our method uses insects - specifically the Black Soldier Fly - as an efficient biological catalyst for converting previous un-usable food waste into fat-rich larval biomass, which can then be refined into biodiesel. This process represents a sustainable alternative to existing biofuel production methods, which use 'fuel crops' that often replace arable food-producing land. In addition, our process yields a range of additional natural outputs ranging from compost to high-protein animal feed, which highlights the efficiency of the system and our company's focus on sustainability.
