The Kirchner Food Fellowship builds a close-knit community of students excited about creative business models in the food and agriculture spaces, and equips them with unparalleled mentorship and support to learn about what makes these models effective. Better yet, Kirchner gives us a chance to make the calls ourselves, using what we learn to invest in bold businesses tackling social challenges.
Kate Collins, 2015-2016 Fellow
I’m passionate about transforming our global food production system and solving the pressing question of how are we going to feed 9.5 billion people in a way that respects planetary boundaries, promotes human health and protects animal welfare. Technology is rapidly changing agriculture and redefining what it means to be a farmer and to produce food. As a Kirchner Fellow it was exciting to be at the forefront of this change and to help driven entrepreneurs bring their solutions to market.
