The death of petrol based plastics is possible today

Part 1:

During this new episode of our Founder series, we are sitting down with Robert Luo, Founder & CEO at Mi Terro®/ Forbes 30 Under 30 Scholar/ GreenBiz 30 Under 30 and winner of the Startup basecamp Global online ClimateTech Pitch competition last June. I was excited to have Rob on the show as he is an incredible serial entrepreneur who is now tackling the enormous problems presented by conventional plastics, one of the most pressing issues for our planet today. Mi Terro’s unique proprietary tech allows agricultural waste to be upcycled into compostable biomaterials to replace plastic and paper for food, fashion & packaging. We will cover the unique journey of the company and the potential that it presents in terms of market and impact opportunities. Finally, we will speak about the exciting future of the company which just started a pilot with Budweiser china.


During the second part of the talk, Rob will give his secret sauce for early-stage founders looking to fundraise. He will share advice on how to unlock big partners while being an early-stage company, and his work-life balance tips for founders. Finally, he will share with you his view on the opportunities that the ClimateTech ecosystems represent today.
