Founder, Hampton Creek
"Founders Pledge is based around using capitalism to make things a bit better. The idea that I could use whatever personal wealth that I might accrue from this to also do good is what I want to do with my life."
Josh Tetrick is the Founder and CEO of Hampton Creek. Josh founded Hampton Creek in 2011 and has built the company around this question: "What would it look like if we started over in food?"
