Arturo Elizondo, Founder and CEO of The EVERY Company, on his life’s purpose:

“I fundamentally believe my purpose on this Earth is to help enable a shutdown of the last factory farm in the world.”

EVERY exists to produce proteins that are better for people, the planet, and animals. Under Arturo’s leadership, the company has raised over $230 million dollars in capital from leading venture investors and some of the largest food companies on Earth to bring to market the world’s first animal-free egg and other animal proteins made without using animals. EVERY has been named one of the 50 Hottest Tech Companies in the World by Crunchbase, and has merited the award of the Top 40 Hottest Companies in the Advanced Bioeconomy and considered one of the 50 NEXT companies to Disrupt the World. His work at EVERY™  has also been featured in two books, The Fate of Food and Clean Meat and in publications including Forbes, Fortune Magazine, Bloomberg News, TechCrunch, Entrepreneur,, and many others.

Arturo was recently named to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list and was recognized as the National Hispanic Institute Person of the Year, and makes it a point to share his experience with others about how we can also make a difference in solving the world’s most pressing problems.

This episode is brought to you by ☀️Yotta Energy !  We all know energy storage is key to deploying renewables at scale. I’ve seen many energy storage solutions for commercial buildings over my years in climate tech, but none as impressive as Yotta’s.  

Yotta Energy’s unique "PV-Coupled" ecosystem of solar+storage solutions simply integrates within the standard solar installation process. Even better, their integrated storage technology can enable up to 60% more solar to be deployed on commercial buildings.  With commercial buildings consuming 35% of US electricity that means Yotta is making a serious dent in CO2 emissions. With the electrification of everything revolution underway, Yotta Energy is poised to meet the growing demands of electrification by sizing solar+storage resources to recharge electric vehicles as they future proof buildings into distributed energy sites powering the grid of the future.
