PlantStance (Short) Beyond Meat IPO
In our latest #plantstance podcast, we got together with Sprouted Ventures to talk about the latest with the#BeyondMeat IPO filing. Keep in mind, we are speaking about our initial impressions. Our objective was to have a quick reaction, a discussion, and some different perspectives to give you something to think about. When a private company decides to put itself out there and their product is intended to act as a disrupter or a solution to big issues, it deserves a conversation. When that very same company also declares a loss in their revenue from the year before, it is an interesting juxtaposition relative to the fact that it is looking for investors in the first place. Financial vulnerabilities aside, is this a worthy investment and if so, why? This is just a collective take and by no means a professionally informed direction.
Another complexity: We learned today that Tyson just exited their investment position of the company right before the filing, the news just keeps marching on.
