Cultivate Tomorrow is a grassroots initiative launched by students from MIT, Northwestern, Yale, UW Madison, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC San Diego, UVM, and Ohio State University. The Founder and Director is Jasmin Kern, currently an undergraduate senior at MIT studying Chemistry with a focus on Food and Agriculture. Other organizers include PhD candidates in Biochemistry and Food Sciences, as well as MBA candidates.
This interdisciplinary team hopes to spark excitement and support for more sustainable food technologies among students and changemakers. In November 2021, Cultivate Tomorrow became a member of Nucleate, a national student-run organization that empowers biotech founders and facilitates the formation of pioneering life sciences companies. Together with Nucleate, Cultivate Tomorrow will continue to foster collaboration and inspire and empower students with a passion for sustainable food technology.
Cultivate tomorrow is scheduled for February 12th, 2022 from 9am – 5pm EST and 9am-5pm PST. This will be a hybrid event with a virtual option and an in-person option in the Bay Area, CA and in Boston, MA. Exact locations are still TBD depending on participation.
This event will be open to everyone interested in the cultivated food industry, biotechnology applications, and sustainable food and agriculture sector.
