Christoph Mayr is the co-founder and CEO of Mirai Foods, which is developing cultivated beef in Switzerland.
They've managed to bootstrap their way to a burger tasting event in a Switzerland restaurant, and followed up with a $4.5M USD seed round.
In this interview, Christoph and I discuss his entrepreneurial journey that led him from Germany to South Korea with his company in the online food delivery industry and ultimately founding Mirai Foods.
A few highlights from this conversation - insights on raising VC money in Europe, his view of competition within the industry, and defining a cultivated meat "pilot plant".
We also get into his views about the Joe Fassel Counter article making waves in the industry.
