About the Session

Leveraging his experience forging over a dozen strategic partnerships at BlueNalu, Lou Cooperhouse, a cultivated seafood innovator, will explore how collaboration fuels success in this industry. He will discuss best practices for building strategic partnerships within the cultivated protein space, from cell line developers to bioprinting experts. He'll also explore open innovation strategies for incorporating external ideas and resources to accelerate cultivated meat and seafood product development. But collaboration is key – fostering a clear communication and collaborative environment is crucial to turn innovative ideas into reality. His experience spans partnerships with multinational companies across the entire value chain, supporting BlueNalu in areas like market intelligence, supply chain, regulatory insights, operations and manufacturing, and even marketing, sales, and distribution. This presentation will therefore showcase the tremendous value that originates from strategic business collaborations, offering best practices for developing partnerships and open innovation strategies. Ultimately, these approaches can propel cultivated meat and seafood companies forward, granting a competitive edge, access to vital resources and expertise, and bringing sustainable, delicious cultivated seafood and meat to consumers.
