The Food-Tech Dilemma: What Dot-Coms Can Learn from Jam Makers
In recent years, there’s been a surge of food-meets-tech discussion, investment, and entrepreneurship. However, for many in the sustainable food movement, Silicon Valley's approach to disrupting an industry can be tangential. Convening a room full of experts from all perspectives, we’ll explore the real world intersection of food + technology and how the two can work together in driving the sustainable food movement forward.
Panel Participants Include:
Brita Rosenheim, Strategist and Advisor, Rosenheim Advisors (moderator)
