Making Meat Out of Thin Air: Lisa Dyson Brings NASA Tech Down to Earth

You already know about plant-based meat. You’re also familiar with meat grown from animal cells, often called cultivated meat or clean meat. But have you ever heard of making protein—and therefore the building blocks of meat—straight out of thin air?

Protecting the Planet from the Ground Up

One former employee of Google’s moonshot factory, Kathy Hannun, is on a mission to help wean your home off of greenhouse gas-emitting fossil fuels.

From Funding Alt-Protein to Starting His Own Company

In many ways, Ryan Bethencourt is an OG of the biotech alt-protein scene. As a cofounder of biotech accelerator Indiebio, he was part of the team that wrote the first-ever investor checks to now well-known names in the field, including Memphis Meats, Clara Foods, and Geltor. In addition to Ryan’s pioneering work to incubate and fund companies seeking to create more sustainable protein sources, he’s now the cofounder of his own startup, Wild Earth. The company makes clean protein dog food that’s attracted big-name investors like Peter Thiel and Mark Cuban, earning a total of $16M in investment so far. In this episode we talk about what it was like for Ryan to go on Shark Tank, including what techniques he used to keep calm to win an unlikely investment on the show. We also discuss how Ryan’s childhood love of both sci-fi and animals forged into one path as an adult, leading him to make early bets on crazy ideas like growing meat and eggs outside of animals—long before it was coo...

$50 Million to Crack the Egg: Real Egg Proteins without the Chickens

By the time he was 22, Arturo Elizondo had already interned in the White House and for Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor. But as the recent college grad learned, making the world a better place via public policy is a long and arduous road, and he wanted to make a difference faster. With a zeal to create an alternative to the factory farming of animals, Arturo bought a one-way ticket to San Francisco with no job, no apartment, and no plan. He just wanted to get involved in the alt-protein world in some way. His first thought was to explore working at VCs to fund the space, or maybe getting a job at one of the companies already founded. But as you’ll hear in this conversation, a chance meeting at a conference resulted in Arturo becoming the 22-year-old CEO of a new biotech startup, Clara Foods, that would soon work to make real egg proteins without using chickens. Well, today, Arturo is 27, Clara Foods has since raised $50 million in venture capital, and the company is about to c...
