In this episode, host Ryan Grant Little speaks with Beatriz Franco, Managing Partner at Vita Vera Ventures. After two decades as a lawyer and investment banker, Beatriz went all-in on a bet to fight climate change by focusing on early-stage investment in the food industry. Her fund focuses on reducing GHG emissions through novel food technologies, reducing food waste and plastics, and increasing efficiency of materials and processes. We talked about why food is often overlooked by climatetech investors, why the food system is both a driver and victim of climate change, and what to do in the Big Apple.
Talk to Beatriz about Next-Gen Food & Ingredients, New Proteins, Sustainable Packaging & Materials during her office hours.
