Description

The speaker line-up is now live! View our speaker list here.

The Ivy League Future of Food Conference is an annual, Ivy League-hosted academic and professional conference dedicated to science, entrepreneurship, and policy in the plant-based and clean meat space. The conference is open to the general public and features renowned leaders from a variety of fields including business, medicine, investing, food production, policy, and consulting.

Each session highlights the central role plant-based and clean meat will play in the future of food as a solution to the environmental, health, security, and ethics challenges posed by traditional food systems.

Attendees can expect an atmosphere of productivity and dialogue as we examine scholarship and industry through a critical lens and endeavor to forge new, ambitious techniques to improve the world around us. With a focus on common goals and a commitment to powerful solutions, we seek to strengthen a professional network to directly and indirectly wield influence in academia, industry, and beyond to shift the paradigm for addressing global issues.

This year's conference features an all-new, reinvented experience that includes remarkable venues, globally renowned speakers, novel content in business & finance, professional staff to aid and support you during your time at the conference.
