Stuff I have done:
Director USA Pavilion Innovation Program, Expo2015
At the World Expo in Milan in 2015, we took the US tech and innovation system to the world of food. We accelerated 10 entrepreneurs from across the world, showcased them at the Expo and brought great speakers that shed new light on the future development of food. I like to think it was the best innovation program at the Expo, though competition was not as steep as I had hoped.
I also regularly speak at conferences such as Bonappetech, Seeds&Chips and London Food Tech Week. I very rarely accept to consult, instead I try to package what I know and the people I know into various projects, events or companies.
