How Just's Co-Founder Got More Than $200 Million From Investors (Podcast)
Josh Tetrick shares how his company has found success around its goal of reducing eggs from the food system.
Josh Tetrick co-founded Just in 2011 with the goal of eliminating eggs from the food system. The company's first products were plant-based mayonnaise and salad dressings, and it recently introduced an egg replacement made of beans. Just is also working on lab-made chicken meat, meaning no animals had to be killed in the process. The company has raised more than $200 million over the past eight years, and executives are reportedly considering an IPO.
In this interview, Tetrick discusses why mission is so important for startup success -- and how he convinced investors to open their checkbooks for his company.
