Event description

Join NCIFT as we learn about Alternative Meat Approaches 101 with Josh Nixon of Prime Roots followed by networking and discussion!

Co-Founder and CTO Josh’s love of science and technology stems from childhood. As the son of two high school science teachers, his ambition for science and technology was prominent at a young age, and while in high school, Josh authored a patent for Devices, Systems, and Methods for Cooling Electronic Device Heat Spreaders. Prior to co-founding Prime Roots, Josh was a software engineer at the Berkeley Lab, where he worked as part of the KBase team building open source software in Python for back end file infrastructure services. He has a Bachelor's of Science in Bioengineering with a minor in Computer Science from UC Berkeley.

At Prime Roots, Josh oversees the science and technology behind the company’s core foundation of koji-based protein.

Prime Roots is celebrating the culture of meat by reimagining protein itself. With koji, Prime Roots is able to replicate the taste and texture of meat without any of the environmental costs of animal proteins.
