Alternative Proteins

This session is part of Future Food-Tech Alternative Proteins Summit, which connects the entire value chain from around the world to map out the future of protein.

Jo Raven, Director of Thematic Research and Corporate Innovation at FAIRR, will moderate a panel discussion addressing:

  • What is the role of big-ticket investors to provide sustainable finance solutions that support innovation and growth for the alt proteins sector?

  • How can the sector improve access to smart blended finance models, encompassing non dilutive funding such as debt and equity finance, low-interest government-backed loans and patient capital that can support a new phase of large-scale commercialization of new proteins.

  • How can investors support food companies within their portfolio to de-risk their scale up roadmap and adopt innovative financial instruments to preserve capital?

  • In a sector that relies heavily on purpose driven investing, in what way can brands focus on a path to profitability through that ensure a reasonable exit environment for later stage investors?

Speakers include:

  • Suhas Narayanaswamy, Principal, Lewis & Clark Agrifood

  • Mark Langley, Managing Partner, Unovis Asset Management
