(2) Infrastructure For Living
From health to education to the food we eat, the houses we live in, and the environment’s sustainability, these aspects of our lives that allow us to go about our day-to-day will continue to take a greater spotlight as new ventures seek to redefine the infrastructure underlying these oftentimes broken systems (e.g. how healthcare and education are delivered to all or how meats are processed) and consumers become more comfortable with these “alternatives”.
For these solutions to truly have widespread impact, infrastructure-focused solutions will have to work hand-in-hand with regulations and institutional players. And while a lot of these solutions will try to sell on social good and sustainability (ESG), the winning pitch will often boil down to costs vis-a-vis results.
