Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $1,146,201 over two years to UC Berkeley to support the Alternative Meats Lab (Alt:Meat Lab), housed at The Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology. Since our October 2019 support, Alt:Meat Lab has incubated a number of new startups developing alternatives to animal products and has helped build the talent pipeline for existing companies working in this space. This funding is intended to enable Alt:Meat Lab to continue its startup incubation and pipeline-building efforts and to expand its educational offerings at UC Berkeley.

This falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
