Alt. Proteins: Not Just Another Tech Revolution

Speakers

Eating meat isn’t over, but consumers are reducing consumption of animal products at unprecedented rates, for health, environmental, and ethical concerns. No wonder, then, that entrepreneurs and VCs are pouring in to develop products that look, cook and taste like the real thing. Who are these pioneers? What opportunities and challenges await them? And, what will differentiate winners from losers?
Suzy Welch, CNBC journalist & vegan activist investor, takes these questions to Lisa Feria and Dan Altschuler Malek, of Stray Dog Capital and New Crop Capital, respectively, the leading early-stage funds focused exclusively on alternative proteins. They’ll discuss these emerging trends, and what they mean for the scientists, entrepreneurs, and investors excited about tech’s next big wave.
