The 2018 NEXUS Global Summit, under the theme of “Next Generation Solutions for a World in Transition”, took place from July 26-28 at The New School in New York City, and included a session at the United Nations headquarters. The annual event, now in its eighth edition, featured a roster of speakers addressing topics from social entrepreneurship to technology facilitating change, to blockchain and social impact.
HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed joined Liza Heavener, NEXUS Chief Operating Officer, and Food Frontier founder and CEO Thomas King on stage to discuss the impact of food technology, investments, and the food science business landscape.
