Zoe has spent her entire career in the CPG F&B industry and most of her life studying food.  A veteran of multiple functions at PepsiCo, she more recently served as Managing Director of two different venture funds in the space, where she helped shepherd over $25mm of capital into early stage companies that prioritized affordability, accessibility and democracy of better-for-you products.  She holds her AB from Smith College, MPH from Columbia University and MBA from NYU-Stern. She is passionate about diversity and inclusion, and co-leads I&D efforts at Chobani.

 

Mitch joined Chobani in Fall 2016 to help run the Incubator as its Program Manager. He currently manages the Food Tech Residency program, which he conceptualized. Prior to Chobani, he spent two years in Detroit as a Venture for America Fellow. While in Detroit, Mitch worked alongside the Founder at a small tech startup and then served as Strategic Project Manager for the City of Detroit’s Head of Innovation and Entrepreneurship. He gained valuable experience working on initiatives to provide resources and support for small businesses throughout the city. Mitch graduated from Duke University with degrees in Political Science and Market & Management Studies.

Sarah joined the Incubator in May of 2018. Previously, she was VP of Business Development at a food startup in San Francisco. Her passions and experience for Corporate Social Responsibility, creating conscious community, and feeding people led her to Chobani.
