California-based Kiverdi is turning carbon dioxide into oils, proteins and other bio-based products. Kiverdi uses microorganisms to transform carbon dioxide and other simple mineral nutrients and gases into raw materials. Daniel Epstein, Chief Executive and Founder of Unreasonable Group, an investment firm supporting growth-stage businesses reports that working through a sustainable lens is disruptive and will reimagine food. Unreasonable Group has invested in Kiverdi as well as Memphis Meats and Growing Underground. Mr Epstein states that for those with the knowledge and patience to have an agri-food start-up, there are huge financial returns which can be made.
