Starting this fall, we are planning to publish a monthly newsletter covering the latest news from the Stanford food & ag community. All past newsletters will be posted on this site. Please make sure you have joined our club via SAA and that the email address in your alumni profile is up to date to receive our newsletter.
Did you just complete a research project or publish an article? Did your company recently introduce a new product or complete a funding round? Are you looking to hire for a specific position at your company? Let us know and we will work to include it.
The Food Revolution (Stanford Business Magazine, Summer 2018)
In the latest edition of Stanford Business Magazine, Shana Lynch takes a closer look at recent developments in food & ag tech. The article is based on a new paper by Stanford GSB professors Haim Mendelson and Hau Lee and 2017 Sloan Fellow Akhil Srivastava. In their paper, the authors investigate what trends are pushing the "food revolution" and highlight the areas that are increasingly attracting startups and investors.
The article features a number of Stanford alumni who have entered the space as entrepreneurs: Christine Su of PastureMap, Sky Kurtz, Mahmoud Adi, and Robert Kupstas of Pure Harvest, Matt Barnard and Nate Mazonson of Plenty.
