Entrepreneurs are at the forefront of innovation, bringing new ideas and solutions to solve some of the biggest challenges we face as a society - reversing agriculture's contribution to climate change, meeting the growing demands for food in a world affected by climate change, and combating chronic disease and rising healthcare costs by bringing healthier food to more people. Now they are bringing out-of-the-box thinking to tackling hardships posed by coronavirus in the communities in which they serve.
While there are certainly many challenges ahead, we believe we have an important role to play in investing behind entrepreneurs that can solve today’s problems in a way that can have far-reaching positive impacts. Innovators in the food and agriculture industry have been working for decades on solutions that can lead not only to food security, but also to healthier people and a healthier planet.
As a former CEO and founder, I am always trying to learn from our CEOs and other experienced executives how to be a better leader. I am infinitely curious about leadership, who does it well, what they do and how they engage with their people or customers or investors. It is beautiful when done right. What type of action-packed philosophies will you bring to your startup?
