Fish 2.0 Supply Chain Innovation Track Sponsors
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation is committed to making a meaningful difference in environmental conservation, patient care and scientific research. Intel co-founder Gordon, and his wife Betty, established the foundation in 2000 to support bold ideas that create lasting impact around the world and at home in the San Francisco Bay Area. Supporting projects like the Fish 2.0 competition, a field-building business competition for the sustainable seafood sector, the foundation is enabling innovative solutions that deliver lasting results.
The David and Lucile Packard Foundation works with partners around the world to improve the lives of children, families, and communities—and to restore and protect our planet. The Foundation’s Marine Fisheries subprogram supports efforts to increase both the demand for and supply of sustainable seafood, using market forces to promote responsible fisheries and aquaculture practices. We are excited about the potential that the Fish 2.0 has to expand the network of investors in the sustainable seafood sector. We believe the program will inspire successful businesses innovations that create both environmental and financial benefits.
The F3 Fish-Free Feed Challenge launched in Nov. 2015 on the HeroX crowdfunding site to encourage innovation of alternative ingredients for aquaculture fish feeds, improve the industry's sustainability, and to reduce pressure on wild-caught fish to supply fish feed components. The contest is intended to help catalyze the development and sale of cost-competitive, viable aquafeeds free of fishmeal and fish oils.
