Revolutionary changes in the food science industries are impacting the ways CEOs and investors are directing their energies and their resources. As our understanding of the impact of basic science and engineering on our food production and delivery systems has expanded, so have the entrepreneurial opportunities in this extremely exciting and lucrative sector. Slone Partners President Tara Kochis-Stach will open this hour-long Zoom webinar, and James Huie, a corporate and securities partner at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati who advises life sciences and technology companies, will moderate a discussion of experts focused on investment strategies, new trends, lessons learned, and the impact of COVID-19 on the food sciences.

The hour will begin with a brief state of the union of the investment opportunities and the future of life sciences presented by Nate Crosser with The Good Food Institute. The conversation will then continue with discussions focused on:

  • Investment strategies in the food sciences from the perspective of investors – what’s hot and what’s not?
  • Lessons learned by CEOs – What has worked and what doesn’t?
  • Follow the money – what will be the next big breakthrough and what are the best strategies to maximize the moment?
  • Navigating the post COVID-19 world – how will the pandemic shape new opportunities for investors and CEOs, both over the short- and longer-term?
