With a clearer understanding than ever of the impact of industrialized civilization on our home planet, forestalling and reversing the degradation of earth's ecosystems is the next moonshot.
Purple Orange Ventures' new fellowship program provides grant funding and mentorship for scientists and engineers to explore startup ideas leveraging deep tech and science for animal-free meat, eggs, and dairy.
GFI's competitive grant program is funding open-access research focused on critical technical barriers with an eye toward large-scale, low-cost cell-based meat production. Explore how these six research projects address the challenges of cost and scale.
These research initiatives span the entire breadth of the supply chain: from crop breeding to product formulation for plant-based meat and from cell line development to bioprocess scale-up for cell-based meat.
