Webinar description

Join us for a seminar featuring several of GFI’s expert mentors who will share their advice and perspectives on effectively scaling up and commercializing alternative protein products. The first part of the seminar will feature a panel discussion where we will dig into the fundamentals of commercialization. Attendees will then have ample opportunity to submit their questions and have them answered by the experts. 

Register now to hear about the following: 

  • GFI’s mentor program and how it can benefit you and your company 
  • Common pitfalls in the commercialization process and how to avoid them 
  • What our mentors wish they had known when commercializing their first products

The GFI Mentor Program enables entrepreneurs and startups at all stages to have 1:1 discussions with subject matter experts across the alternative protein ecosystem. Mentors volunteer their time and industry knowledge and have expertise spanning all areas of building an alt protein business. Since the program’s inception in mid-2022, GFI has made more than 500 mentor/mentee introductions. The program is designed to match individuals and companies with experts addressing specific startup challenges vs offering general startup advice. In addition to mentors with scaling and commercialization experience, GFI Mentors also bring expertise including, but not limited to, fundraising, IP, pitching, and tech.
