Simpliigood’s DLD Tel Aviv 2019 opening panel
In September 2019, Simpliigood’s CEO, Lior Shalev, was a speaker in the opening panel of DLD Tel Aviv Innovation Festival.
Lior appeared as part of a panel that discussed the future of food, and how technology and the food-tech industry is disrupting and changing the world as we know it.
Simpliigood’s fresh Spirulina was presented as a disruptive and nutrient-dense solution for famines across the globe, given its high value of nutritional benefits, whole protein density and eco – friendly production process.
Lior spoke about the future of impact and how food-tech is the spearheading the area. “ we need to stop thinking in a mindset of two pockets one for doing good and the other for making money and start realizing that we only have one”, “a company that in its DNA does not hold the impact view and harms the environment while making money will not be tolerated by the consumers”. “we need to remember that innovation and technology are only tools and the target itself”.
Lior spoke alongside Sir Ronald Cohen, chairman of the Global Steering Group for Impact Investments – The Portland Trust, Mirek Dusek, head of the Middle East and North Africa & member of the Executive Committee – World Economic Forum, Eugene Kandel, CEO – Start Up Nation Central, Avinash Sarma, managing partner – GRIL Ventures & Habitatio and James Waterman, senior director strategic relations – Singularity University.
