Families of Worth: How Agritech Innovation Is Leading a Food Revolution

Families of Worth is a community of diverse backgrounds, perspectives and experiences contributing to the betterment of the whole. The Families of Worth Virtual series brings together values-driven and impactful individuals—from founders and CEOs to major philanthropists—to hear unique speakers, forge new connections and foster a culture of equality and diversity. Providing a high-touch experience for the Families of Worth Community with informative dialogue around philanthropy, impact, innovation, legacy, succession, relationships, social inclusion, diversity and more. Worth will create engaging storytelling and intimate, connection-building experiential events that create multiple and authentic touchpoints and build relationships.

One-third of all food produced for human consumption goes to waste, responsible for approximately 8 percent of the world’s greenhouse gases. Yet still, the World Health Organization estimates that 690 million people went hungry in 2019, with COVID-19 tipping up to 130 million more people into chronic hunger. In this session, we will discuss how the digital revolution is spurring sustainable food production to change the way that the industry looks at sustainability, pricing and other critical decisions related to food.

Future Events
  • Tuesday, January 5, 2020, 3 p.m ET Why Billionaires Are Fueling the Space Race and How It Will Help Humanity?

    The privatization of human space flight will only continue to ramp up in coming years, as billionaires such as Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos and Sir Richard Branson race to create cheap, commercialized space travel. While these big names definitely hope to make money in this new market, they are are also filling huge voids left by governments that have had to cut funding for space mission—not to mention, radically transforming our future in the process.

    Featuring: Dylan Taylor, Chairman and CEO Voyager Space Holdings & Rachel Lyons, Executive Director, Space for Humanity
