We stand for creating a global, sustainable, and scalable solution to provide greater access to better forms of protein for everyone. We believe that insect based protein can be a real solution to world hunger, malnutrition and food insecurity and that produced at a large-scale can be a cost-effective product with a very low environmental impact. We also believe in operating on as local a level as possible and building a supply-chain that empowers small-scale farmers and creates jobs as a tool for poverty alleviation.
Our team consists of five Columbia MBA students who have grown up, lived and spent significant time working in Lebanon, The Netherlands, Pakistan, Cambodia, Madagascar and the US. We come from a broad range of backgrounds including consulting, finance, social enterprise, education, and retail/food service. We are all extremely passionate about combining our various skill sets and prior experience into creating a solution that is built around sustainable agriculture, improving global health and reducing poverty, and making a positive impact in the world in our lifetime.
