The latest trends and insights on impact entrepreneurship and investing.

Alternatives for meat coming in the form of plant-based or cell-based meat, new data helping us optimise agriculture, shorter food chains,… Startups, accelerators, conferences and investments funds are popping up like mushrooms in this market.
Which interesting initiatives have you come across?
As always, with love,
Yonca & Cristina
