Following 15 years in brand and marketing agencies as a strategist, in London and New York, Kirsty joined naturally fast-food brand LEON as their first Brand & Marketing Director where she worked for four years. This included a year as Sustainability & Values Director which she left to join regenerative agrifood enterprise New Foundation Farms. A start-up, the enterprise is founded on a field to fork model and as it is in its first phase of fundraising, the role of finance and investing is a vital topic.
Kirsty has a MSc in Sustainability & Responsibility, is a beekeeper and watches too many films.
We will explore the role of money, finance and investments in scaling regenerative approaches with a Farmer (Jeroen Klompe, farmer and cofounder Soil Heroes), Investment Platform (Dan Miller Steward), Agrifood company (Kirsty Saddler, New Foundation Farms) and Investor Tessa Etkin-Silver (Be The Earth Investments).
