The beverage industry is increasingly appealing to investors and beverage venture capital firms because of its market growth potential (over $1.9T by 2030), product diversity, and relevant stability. And the surge in plan-based and sustainable beverages, coupled with the rise of e-commerce, only facilitates its attractiveness for potential VCs.
It may be challenging for a beverage startup to raise funding nowadays. Competition strikes, with over 5K startups and established players with deep pockets and a significant market share. Thus, startups need to be creative, persuasive, and well-prepared while convincing investors to pour money into their projects.
