Event description

Political instability, poverty, limited access to adequate housing or employment are some of the factors that contribute to food insecurity around the world. Join IEN and a lineup of speakers from VegTech Invest, Project Drawdown, The Good Food Institute, the FAIRR Initiative, and Barclays for a discussion on the inefficiencies that contribute to food insecurity. This virtual, hour-long conversation will also explore how investing in shifting the global food supply system to be more efficient can help to address our current inefficiencies and positively impact food insecurity.

Participants will learn:

  • Why our current food supply system is responsible, at least in part and in addition to political strife, for current food inefficiency and current and future food insecurity
  • How businesses in the alternative proteins, plant-based innovation, and food tech sectors are addressing food insecurity
  • What investible technologies are being developed to address food insecurity and food independence
  • How emerging and current investable technologies will be applied evenly across countries and economic tiers

GFI Investor Engagement Manager Sharyn Murray will serve as a panelist alongside Maria Lettini of the FAIRR Initiative, Matt Spence of Guggenheim Partners, and Paul West of Project Drawdown. The event will be moderated by VegTech Invest CEO Elysabeth Alfano.
