From the event website:
“Food+Tech Connect, in partnership with the GRACE Communications Foundation and Applegate, is bringing together technologists, entrepreneurs, creatives, policy experts, non-profit leaders and industry executives to develop technologies and tools that help create a better future for meat.
Over the course of the weekend, teams will work with design-thinking facilitators and industry “steakholders” to rapidly prototype innovative solutions to the way meat is produced, processed, distributed, sold and consumed.”
From the organizers:
“Hosted at the Stanford d.School, the event will bring together an all-star list of mentors to help teams break down some of the greatest challenges facing sustainable meat and prototype solutions, including Applegate CEO Stephen McDonnell, Adam Salomone of Harvard Common Press, Alon Salant and Rob Sprio of Good Eggs, Nait Jones of Aglocal, Benzi Ronen of Farmigo, Aza Raskin and Andrew Rosenthal of Jawbone UP, Tia Harrison of Avedanos and the Butcher’s Guild, and many more. We also have a great list of confirmed judges, including Bill and Nicolette Niman of BN Ranch, Amol Deshpande of Kleiner Perkins, Anya Fernald of Belcampo and Niko Hrdy of Valley Oak Investments.”
