Akua, with a $7 million valuation cap, is raising crowdfunding on Republic. It is a meat-alt company that uses technology to make nutrient-dense, sustainable, and regenerative food. The products of Akua are rich in protein and made from ocean-farmed kelp. Courtney Boyd Myers founded in 2016 and has raised over $750,000 since its inception. The proceeds of the current crowdfunding round, with a minimum raise of $25,000 and a maximum raise of $1,070,000, will be used to create a platform of meat-alternative products, grow its brand, and launch The Kelp Burger. Akua products, including the Kelp Jerky, are already available in over 40 stores across the US.
