Open Philanthropy recommended a grant of $700,000 over two years to UC Berkeley to support the Alternative Meats Lab, housed at The Sutardja Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology. This grant may help spur new startups developing alternatives to animal products, and could help build the talent pipeline for existing companies working in this space.

This follows our January 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.
