Venture capitalist and strategic advisor Rahim Rajwani has had his hands in various endeavors, including cryptocurrency, life sciences, mining, and novel medicine. For over twenty-two years, Rajwani has built, financed, and supported a wide range of public companies and private businesses.
Rajwani is the founder of Triumph Advisors, a Vancouver-based organization offering international capital market expertise. He has specialized in taking private assets public his entire career.
An Investment and Advising Guru
After graduating from the University of British Columbia in Canada in 1995, Rajwani has held various high-level roles, including CCO and VP of Compliance at Union Securities, executive at Peninsula Merchant Syndications Corporation, and founder, advisor, and financier behind GreenStar Biosciences, a cannabis asset.
He has earned a reputation as a skilled strategic advisor, risk mitigator, and wise investor.
A New Way to Feed the World
Rajwani’s latest venture might sound like something out of a science fiction movie, but it is poised to revolutionize the global food industry, changing how people look at meat, factory farming, and sustainability.
Rajwani is the co-founder and strategic advisor for Atelier Meats, a company utilizing biotechnology and tissue engineering to create real meat in a lab environment. As far-fetched as this concept may seem, the results are real. Since Atelier Meats are “structured,” they take on a familiar form – pork chops, steak, and chicken breasts. This ability to engineer structured meat sets Atelier Meats apart from other biotech meat, which typically results in unstructured shapes like chicken nuggets, meatballs, or ground beef.
Rajwani had previously jumped into innovative farming initiatives with GreenStar Biosciences and continues that interest in making farming more thoughtful and sustainable with Atelier Meats.
Atelier provides an ethical alternative to factory farming, which leads to a better quality of life for animals and apparent health benefits for human beings. It’s well documented that factory farming is terrible for the environment, leading to deforestation and an overabundance of carbon emissions. Atelier Meats’ scientific and technological advances promise new solutions.
Making Designer Meat
The science behind Atelier is fascinating, and it’s easy to see why Rajwani would be interested in developing this emerging technology. With climate change and sustainability issues at the forefront of global discourse, not only does Atelier serve an altruistic role but one that is a solid move for investors.
The product is not “meat-like”; it’s real meat. The founders behind Atelier bring advanced technological prowess in tissue engineering, cell culture, and process development to the table.
The talk of lab-grown meats hitting dinner tables worldwide has been bandied around for some time. Actor Ashton Kutcher has invested in one maker, Leonardo Di Caprio invested in another, and the promise of lab-grown meat has been in the news since late 2013. Scientists and investors alike have praised the innovation as the solution to world hunger. With advances being made in the industry in the last year, including the “world’s first industrial cultured meat facility,” popping up in Israel, the world is many steps closer to seeing lab-grown meat on their dinner tables.
Rahim Rajwani has mastered the art of taking companies public and knows a good bet when he sees one. His history of success has proven his strength as a venture capitalist, founder, and advisor. With him having a hand in the creation of Atelier Meats, the company can look forward to a bright future.
