The F3 – Future of Fish Feed will convene a panel of aquaculture investors who will discuss their areas of interest, investing approaches and favorite up-and-coming alternative ingredients. The webinar Aquafeed Investors: Funding the Future of Food will include representatives from Aqua-Spark, HATCH, S2G Ventures, IndieBio, Tianfeng Securities, Xplore Inc.
As wild-caught fish supplies dwindle, the entire aquaculture industry has a stake in ingredients that are nutritionally equivalent and can serve as substitutes for fishmeal and fish oil. Nutritionally equivalent substitutes can de-risk supply chains and future-proof the aquaculture industry for continued growth. For investors, these same supply-chain problems present potentially lucrative growth opportunities.
Critical for the initiation and growth of aquafeed ingredient companies are investors. This session offers a sampling of investors representing the full range from seed to venture, and from a variety of perspectives including synthetic biology, aquaculture and conservation.
The webinar will take place on October 14, 2021 at 5 am GMT, 1 pm Beijing time, 1 am EDT. For more information and to register, visit f3meeting.com/webinars. The webinar recording will be available on the F3 Youtube channel following the event.
