“I am happy to be a part of the VegTech™ Invest Thought Leadership Council.  The VegTech™ ETF EATV gives people an option to invest in the companies that are innovating to replace animals from the supply chain and it is time that the financial markets have this kind of product for people, the planet and animals,” shared Thought Leadership Council member and renowned author, Peter Singer.

The council comprises six experts spanning Ethics, Environmental Justice, Venture Investing, Product Brand Strategy, Next Gen Leadership and Health.

The rest of the panel consists of:

  • Environmental Justice: Professor Jason Scorse, Chair of the International Environmental Policy Program and Director of the Center for the Blue Economy, Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey
  • Alternatives Investing: Sharyn Murray, Investment Engagement Manager, The Good Food Institute*

  • Health: Dr. Maha Tahiri, CEO and Founder of Nutrition Sustainability Strategies LLC
  • Next Gen Leadership: Abbey Schmitt, MBA Candidate, Northwestern’s Kellogg School of Business

“Fund Manager Dr. Sasha Goodman and I have our heads down in the markets, nose to the grindstone.  We want to surround ourselves with experts who can brief us on the advancements in their sectors that might help to inform our work with EATV as the global food supply system shifts,” says CEO Elysabeth Alfano.  “We are grateful for their expertise and thought leadership in their diverse and varied fields.”

“Finance is a creative and dynamic industry.  Much like the food industry, it touches every aspect of society.  Our experts keep us up to date on what they are seeing and experiencing in their fields, and we use this information to keep our work on the cutting edge,” says Dr. Goodman.
