UK vertical grower selected for Grow & Innovate program to take startups to Asia

SETsquared Bristol member, LettUs Grow, is one of the eight UK-based agrifood companies to be selected by GROW and Innovate the UK to participate in the inaugural cohort of the Global Incubator Programme – Gateway to Asia, an internationalization assistance initiative helping businesses to grow and scale in the region, delivered with the support of Innovate UK EDGE and the British Chamber of Commerce Singapore.

Over the course of the next six months, the Global Incubator Program will help the eight selected companies validate their market fit and co-develop an internationalization roadmap to establish their in-market presence in Asia. It will provide participants with support from Innovate UK and GROW, including access to their mentor and partner networks. The five-month program is integrated with GROW’sLand x Launch platform, allowing entrepreneurs to capitalize on GROW’s network to access suppliers, channel partners, corporates, and customers in Asia.

The Global Incubator Programme leverages the growth in demand for more sustainable food systems across Asia, driven by changing consumer preferences, income growth, digitalization, and an increased focus on climate- and pandemic-resilient supply chains.

Jack Farmer, Co-Founder, and CSO of LettUs Grow, said “It’s really gratifying to be accepted into the 2021 Global Incubator Programme – Gateway to Asia cohort. We are excited to enter our next stage of growth, scaling internationally to deploy our innovations into the global horticulture market, and this program accelerates our ability to enter East Asia and build partnerships for the long term."
