  • Cauldron, an Australian startup, raises $6.25 million in Series A funding led by Horizons Ventures.
  • The funding aims to scale Cauldron’s continuous fermentation technology for streamlined production of high-value ingredients.
  • Additional support comes from investors like SOSV, In-Q-Tel (IQT), and Main Sequence, bringing Cauldron’s total funding to $17 million.
  • The investment will help Cauldron finalise plans for a 500,000-litre facility and build a network of smaller precision fermentation facilities.

Cauldron, an innovative Australian startup, has recently secured a substantial investment of $6.25 million in a Series A funding round spearheaded by Horizons Ventures

This infusion of capital is aimed at bolstering Cauldron’s cutting-edge manufacturing platform, which facilitates the streamlined production of high-value ingredients through precision fermentation in a seamless, continuous process.

This significant funding round received additional support from prominent investors such as SOSV, In-Q-Tel (IQT), and Main Sequence, further solidifying Cauldron’s position in the market. 

With this latest investment, Cauldron’s total funding now stands at an impressive $17 million, marking a significant milestone in the company’s growth trajectory

It will enable Cauldron to finalise partners and plans for a 500,000-litre facility with a longer-term plan to build a network of “smaller, smarter” precision fermentation facilities as a CDMO (contract development and manufacturing organisation).

Cauldron—which operates 25,000-litres of fermentation capacity at its site in Orange, New South Wales—has proven its continuous fermentation tech “at an industrially relevant scale, unlocking a significant decrease—between 30-50%—in the cost of goods for our customers vs traditional batch fermentation,” claimed Cauldron co founder and CEO Michele Stansfield.
