Feeding the Future: A conversation with founders

March 10, 2023

On March 8, 2023 we recognized International Women’s Day with a special conversation with three Canadian founders in the food and ag/tech space. This discussion covered a range of topics from people/teams planning; leveraging talent from universities; embracing grant-writing to secure non-dilutive capital; recognizing that ‘you don’t know what you don’t know’; having difficult conversations; the value of patience, passion and persistence; networking and so much more.

A huge thanks to our speakers: Jasmine Byrne (Big Mountain Foods), Hailey Jefferies (Prairie Fava), and Fei Luo (Liven Proteins), and our wonderful moderator, Yuan Shi from The51, a female-focused investment firm. And deep appreciation to our sponsor, TD and their Women in Enterprise program, and our event partner, the Canadian Food Innovation Network. Happy listening!
