In partnership with

Woven Science

Our Psychedelic Therapy sector is a collaboration between Founders Factory and the team behind Woven Science. Woven Science is a pioneer in building and backing businesses that use advances in plant medicine, neuroscience, psychopharmacology, psychotherapy and technology to drive mental health outcomes profitably and scalably across the entire treatment arc.

There is an opportunity to redefine mental
healthcare across every stage of the treatment journey

Our three areas of focus

Psychedelic medicine, used in combination with traditional therapy, is opening new avenues of mental healthcare.


The purposeful programs, quality products, and inclusive communities that support and sustain long-term wellbeing.


The spaces and tools to deliver transformational psychedelic-assisted therapies and other healing modalities.


The therapies and protocols making up the diversified drug-development pipeline.

Example solutions across these three pillars include administrative tools, clinical education programs, integration services, drug development, consumer packaged goods, and health technologies that make quality care more accessible, affordable, and seamlessly integrated.

Are you an industry expert with a bold idea?

Our venture studio invests in entrepreneurs who have an idea and want to build a startup from scratch with almost zero risk.

As part of our Psychdelic Therapy Studio program, you'll receive the capital you need to validate the idea, build the product and get to market, combined with bespoke support and access to a world-class network.

The studio program - a fast-track for talented entrepreneurs

A 12-month program for entrepreneurs

We’ve spent years perfecting a platform that shortcuts - and de-risks - building a business from scratch. We support individuals wanting to turn entrepreneurial ideas into venture-backable businesses by providing capital, expert operational support, and the scale of our partners.

Capital to build the product and get to market

You'll receive an initial cash investment to validate your idea and build out the product, and additional capital once we've proven the concept and you're ready to launch.

Together with an expert team

Together we will validate ideas, build the MVP, and test, iterate, and acquire your first customers. After 6-months of building confidence around a proof-of-concept, we will help you accelerate your launch.

Helping you succeed is our #1 objective

Dr Kyle Grant and Tom de Wilton, Co-founders

"Founders Factory's accelerator turned out to be a real leg-up for our business. We received mentorship from some of the best minds at Reckitt Benckiser (RB), and we're soon to launch a game-changing partnership with one of their household brands.

Not to mention how Founders Factory equipped us with the skills and know-how to scale our business into two new cities and hire our first team. "
