Christine will be joined by Ryan Bethencourt, the CEO of Wild Earth, a plant- and biotech-based sustainable pet and human food company, and partner at Babel Ventures, a leading Silicon Valley-based consumer biotech venture capital fund. Ryan is one of the biggest visionaries we know and we’re thrilled to have the pleasure to talk to him about the tales, trends, and truths that are circulating in the alternative protein space. Agriculture and food will change more in the next 50 years than they have in the last 10,000 years – but will the future be made of slaughter-free meats and fish, affordable tailored nutrition, and plant-based pet food? Join us to find out!
This session is part of the 'Alternative Protein' Topical Week, where we will dedicate a week to a trend topic to get past the hype and high-level messages that dominate headlines and webinars, and really deep-dive into the technologies and startups shaping the food space. We aim to share lessons, ideas and opportunities with burgeoning entrepreneurs, and also uncover perspectives of next-gens around the world.
Christine & Guests is your chance to meet high-profile visionaries and thought leaders from our Founder Christine’s diverse personal and professional network. In a 60-minute, intimate fireside chat format, Christine and her guests will “get real” about topics like open business models, radical collaboration, the food supply chain, the future of education – and other key trends shaping the industry and the world at large. Attendees who register via the public link are joining as silent listeners and can use the Q&A feature to ask questions.
