Paul Shapiro, best selling author of Clean Meat will keynote a special Makers Meetup on the subject of the “Future of Food” which will take place as part of Philly Tech Week.
We expect this free event to quickly sell-out the seating capacity of the Venture Cafe Quorum, so RSVP right away to save your space.
Please join us, starting at 4:00pm on May 9th 2019, for our Makers Meetup in partnership with Philly Tech Week.
The subject for this event – perhaps the most significant of the year – is the Future of Food. More specifically, how to create meat from plants and even animal cells, rather than from animal slaughter. Our keynote speaker will be Paul Shapiro, best-selling author of Clean Meat. https://cleanmeat.com/
Other presenters will include CEO’s Shannon Falconer (Because Animals) and Benjamina Bollag (Higher Steaks), venture capitalists Jay Karandikar (New Crop Capital) and Peter Bodenheimer (SOSV Food-X) and celebrity chef Richard Landau (VEDGE).
We’ll learn how no-kill meat (from plants as well as cell-based) is no longer science fiction, but rather a revolution which is on the cusp of delivering a huge win for animal welfare, human health and the planet. Not to mention – according to leading investors (including Bill Gates) – a potentially trillion-dollar business opportunity. A chance to do well while having an immensely positive social impact!
And an opportunity for which Philly’s biotech-rich ecosystem is well suited for success.
