Are You a High Potential Pet Care Startup?

The pet care industry is $90B and growing, with innovation coming from many ambitious startups. Purina helps support this growth through the Pet Care Innovation Prize and Pet Care Innovation Network.

Pet Care Innovation Prize

The Pet Care Innovation Prize competition gives up to five finalists $10,000 in cash, a spot in an accelerator Boot Camp, and a spot in a pitch competition seen widely by industry leaders. One grand prize winner will receive an additional $10,000 prize, all powered by the global leader – Nestlé Purina PetCare.

Pet Care Innovation Network

The Pet Care Innovation Network serves the founders of high growth pet startups by providing year-round access to industry leaders and investors, peer support, and networking events with no strings attached.  Once a year at our Summit, members meet and network with Purina executives, pet-friendly investors, and buyers in an intimate setting to do business and learn from each other.
