How Growthwell raised an eight-figure sum from Temasek


Innovation sometimes happens before profit

Bringing a never-before-seen meat replacement product into the market and seeking to incept the minds of investors is much easier said than done. On the crux of a breakthrough with Israel company ChickP, the Growthwell team were close to bringing to market the first non-allergenic, cruelty-free alternative. They just needed help to bring that story to life.

Making the case for chickpeas as meat replacements

Raising purely with IP rights, without profits or any validated proof-of-concept is no easy feat. We worked with the team to isolate their key difference, create a commercial case for the product although the business has yet to generate any revenue at the time of fundraising.

The development and commercialisation of this solution requires a significant runway and cash to burn. Playing up team experience in F&B as well as a logistic network that could see their raw material circulated into restaurants was the best bet to tell a compelling story.

Backed by Singapore’s sovereign fund

Armed with their new story, in an unprecedented seed round, the Growthwell team drew interest from a stable of investors including Singapore’s sovereign fund: Temasek. They raised an eight-figure sum to grow their joint-ventures in Israel as well as to scale production for their chick-pea protein isolate to commercialise within SouthEast Asia.

Pitching the ‘Linkedin for Youths’

There are 75 million unemployed young people worldwide and many employers are struggling to fill entry-level vacancies. Founded by three of the youngest entrepreneurs in the JFDI program, the Glints team sought to bridge the mismatch between employer needs and skills young talent have to offer. Now they just needed to raise the funds to make the idea a reality.


An evolving story through the years with an evolving approach

Over the years, Glints grew strength-to-strength, blasting through revenue targets and expanding across Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand and more.

Along for the ride, we adjusted and optimised their pitch each time to match the funding round they were gunning for.
