Shara Ticku is the CEO and Co-Founder of C16 Biosciences, which has developed a biofermentation platform for producing next-generation oils, fats and lipids to eliminate the most unsustainable ingredients in our consumer products system. C16 Bio's first product is an alternative to palm oil -- the ingredient found ubiquitously across personal care, home care and food products, but whose production depends on deforestation, human rights and labor abuses. Before founding C16, Shara worked at the United Nations, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, and Goldman Sachs. She holds an MBA from Harvard Business School and a BA from the University of Texas.
