Hampton Creek
Hampton Creek aims to remove the barriers for everyone around the world to consume healthy, delicious, sustainable food

Feeding the world is a vexing problem. Many countries struggle to feed their people, yet one third of Americans are obese, costing the U.S. economy nearly $1 trillion a year. We have a rapidly growing global population, yet our planet is running out of resources. We have less land than ever before, limited water and a fragile ecosystem. We need to find a way to produce healthy food at low cost, even in times of drought or extreme weather.

We need a solution that cuts to the core of the problem.

Hampton Creek is doing just that and rewriting the OS of food. Josh Tetrick, founder and CEO of Hampton Creek, the maker of Just Mayo, Just Cookies and Just Cookie Dough (and many more products to come), is challenging the world’s assumptions about where our food comes from, how it’s made and what healthy food tastes like. His approach is environmentally conscious and foodie friendly.

LightSail Energy
We Store Energy in Compressed Air

We aim to produce the world’s cleanest and most economical energy storage systems. Compressing air creates heat energy. Until now, this was wasted, drastically reducing efficiency.

Our innovation: an elegant method of capturing this heat energy and regenerating useful energy from it. We inject a fine, dense mist of water spray which rapidly absorbs the heat energy of compression and provides it during expansion

Matternet
Creating the next paradigm for transportation using networks of small flying vehicles
There are places in the world, including the majority of Africa and Asia, which completely lack usable roads. A billion people in the world have no access to all-season roads. Alright, so let’s build more roads, right? The solution is not that simple. In order to build African road infrastructure equivalent to America’s, it would take 23 years and cost $4 trillion. In the meantime, millions of people would continue to die each year because they lack access to basic resources such as food and medicine.
