These ventures have just started at Accelerate Cambridge. They are at various stages of development, with some having already raised their first seed round.
Animal Alternative Technologies
Animal Alternative Technologies is a recently founded biotechnology B2B spin out of the University of Cambridge. We are engineering a scalable, end-to-end ecosystem for Cultured Meat production, including specialist processes, enabling technologies, software, hardware and raw materials to democratize access to sustainable food and tackle some of the world’s biggest sustainability and health challenges.
Limosaero is developing a low-altitude long-endurance solar-powered unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) which has the capability to extend flight time up to multiple days, with zero CO2 emissions. Extending the UAV’s endurance means longer time aloft and further distances travelled. Limosaero’s product will have a competitive advantage over existing technologies as it sits in a market gap between current aircraft, UAV and satellite technologies. Limosaero’s multi-day targeted operation will be disruptive across many industries, such as surveying, telecommunications, environmental monitoring, meteorology, agriculture and many more as it offers new capabilities not currently available.

RE.USE – the green way, for takeaway. We are the UK’s first social enterprise to implement a digital system for reusable take-away packaging. Our mission is to eliminate the use of single-use containers in the food delivery market. Our containers are made of highly durable, heat and leak resistant polypropylene, can be traced by our digitised system, reused 1,000 times and recycled into brand new containers.
Our reusable takeaway system allows savings in waste stream hauling fees, frequent purchasing and transportation of disposable containers, and prevents millions of single-use containers ending up in the natural environment and the need for virgin materials, hence reducing environmental impacts. RE.USE represents an environmentally friendly, cost-efficient, safe alternative to using single-use containers for takeaway orders.
