Two billion people worldwide consume alcoholic drinks.
GABA Labs’ mission is to become a global leader in transforming this market.
Our goal is to develop ingredients that enable drinks companies to produce ethanol-free adult social beverages that deliver all the relaxation and conviviality of alcohol.
Our flagship ingredient, known as “Alcarelle”, is a synthetic compound which is ready to begin the four years of regulatory testing needed to achieve market approval. This process requires funding of £20M.
In the meantime, we’re already making a significant impact in this new market for non-alcoholic, functional adult social drinks. In January 2021, GABA Labs launched the Social Drinks Company which has already released the first of its plant-based botanical spirits, Sentia.
We receive frequent investment enquiries from all around the world, and we’re keen to meet this demand. So, in compliance with the FCA (Financial Conduct Authority) regulations in the UK, we’re looking at the following options across the four key categories of investors (links show the FCA Handbook’s criteria for each category):
Formal funding process: our current investment round is open (as of Jan 2022) for HNW (high net worth) and professional investors. Please open the form directly below to request our Investment Memorandum and begin the conversation.
CrowdFunding: this would be for restricted/small/retail and sophisticated investors looking to invest smaller amounts. Following a review in 2021 and discussions with investors, we’ve decided that for the moment, CrowdFunding will NOT be a source of funds for us.
Thanks very much. We look forward to working with you in the future.
