After decades of negative public health consequences and high environmental costs, it’s clear that urgent work is needed to reshape the food system. But are “new foods” and ag tech the answer? And if so, what needs to be on the agenda? Led by the Food and Environment Reporting Network (FERN), an award-winning, independent news organization, the speakers will discuss how food start-ups can truly transform the food system, rather than simply offer the latest food or farming fad.

In two engaging panels, FERN will help frame the issues facing entrepreneurs and investors, looking to offer comprehensive solutions to these questions. How can sustainability be a core principle in a disruptive venture and what measurements can be used to track success? How can investors ensure that sustainability is a mandate? How can these metrics become more than just marketing? And how successful will these sustainable models likely be?
