Monica Bhatia, PhD, has a rich background in biotech manufacturing, ingredient and fermentation expertise, and a passion for sustainable and nutritious food. As the co-founder and co-CEO of EQUII, a food technology startup, she has been instrumental in the development of high-protein, plant-based food products that focus on sustainability and health.

Dr. Bhatia's entrepreneurial journey is driven by her understanding of the sustainable protein industry and her personal commitment to health and nutrition. As a mother and a health enthusiast, she saw the need for sustainable proteins that also deliver on taste and texture, which led to the inception of EQUII. Her vision is to shift the paradigm in protein consumption from meat to plant-based staples, making them a more natural and tasty option.
