Nikola Baumschlager

Venture Consultant

My journey began in the vibrant start-up scene of San Francisco, following that I started working in a start up consultancy helping founders improve their business models. However, my fascination with food systems and the potential of meat alternatives led me down a compelling path. After working with a pioneering meat alternative scale-up, I'm now back in consultancy, armed with a deep passion for reshaping the food system.
