Sustainable Protein: How Tech and Finance are Disrupting and Innovating for the Future

Date: Monday, November 26, 2018
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM EDT
*By invitation only

As factory farming receives more and more attention for its impact on the environment and animal welfare, some businesses have turned toward sustainable protein. Join the NYU Stern Center for Sustainable Business, the NYU Department of Environmental Studies and the Environmental Humanities Initiative and learn about the exciting new world and investor opportunities of sustainable protein, including new plant-based seafood, plant-based burgers that 'bleed,' pea milk and nut cheeses. The evening will consist of a one-hour panel featuring industry thought leaders followed by a networking event that includes samples of some of the more popular and innovative protein-rich products — and the chance to learn more about this promising new space.

Panelists include:
  • Chris Kerr, co-CEO and chair, Good Catch
  • Euripides Pelekanos, CEO and founder, Bareburger 
  • Jody Rasch (MBA '83), managing trustee, VegInvest
  • Rosie Wardle, investor engagement, FAIRR
