District Ventures Capital, Arlene Dickinson’s venture capital fund, has invested in cohort III member Chickapea Pasta.
Chickapea Pasta has revolutionized the pasta industry by developing a healthy and tasty alternative to the dinner-time-classic. Made from just two ingredients, chickpeas and lentil flour, Chickapea pastas are gluten free, non-GMO Project Verified, certified organic and vegan, and offer an amazing 23 g of protein.
“Chickapea Pasta is exactly the kind of company we’re looking to invest in: an innovative product that challenges the traditional food industry by offering consumers healthy alternatives; a strong track record of sales, and an incredible entrepreneur that’s built a great company,” said Arlene Dickinson, head of the venture capital fund.
Chickapea Pasta plans to launch its new product line, Macaroni & Cheese, in the fall.
