[AFLSE DC] Important Update On Our December 4th Event

Dear [first_name],

 

Happy Thanksgiving! We have an important update on our December 4th alumni panel. Two of our panelists have been asked to speak at the UN that evening and can't attend after all.

 

In place of the panel on climate security, Bruce Friedrich - an LSE alum and the co-founder/executive director of The Good Food Institute - will give a talk on food technology in the context of climate change. All other event details (date, time, and location) are the same.

 

Learn more about Bruce's talk and register to hear it in person below!

The Future of Protein: Blending Markets and Food Technology to Solve Some of the World’s Biggest Problems

As populations and incomes rise throughout the world, more and more environmental scientists and economists are asking how the world will support its projected population of 9.5 billion people by 2050 and how governments can meet the climate change goals they committed to in the Paris Agreement.

Venture capital firms, entrepreneurs, and major corporations are rising to the challenge, innovating and marketing plant and cultured alternatives to meat, dairy, and eggs that are cleaner, safer, and more sustainable.

In this talk, LSE alum and GFI co-founder/executive director Bruce Friedrich will discuss why animal protein alternatives are gaining popularity with the biggest tech investors in Silicon Valley, including Bill Gates, Biz Stone, and Sergey Brin; share updates on some of the most exciting developments in the field; and talk about career opportunities in the venture capital and entrepreneurial fields.

This talk will serve as a preview for Friedrich's new book, which will be released on January 2, 2018, and is available for pre-order.

 

See you soon,

 

Lauren Maffeo
Chair,
AFLSE DC
