In case anyone is interested, Columbia Business School’s 2013 Social Enterprise Conference came on our radar screens (thanks Karen!) and we thought to pass it along to you in case of interest, since there is a panel involving food.
Food Systems: Shake the Hand that Feeds You
Come hear 4 food-entreprenuers give small talks on their big ideas for solving the global food crisis. In our world of 7 billion, 1 billion suffer from undernutrition, while another 1 billion suffer from over-nutrition. Although the world’s farmers harvest enough to feed the planet, twenty-five percent of our global food supply is lost to spoilage. In addition, society has a growing concern about the environmental and social consequences of where our food comes from and how it gets to our plates. Each world-class speaker will have 10 minutes to share their groundbreaking story and offer sustainable business solutions to the global food crisis.
