Nate Salpenter

Passionate about driving systematic change, Nate Salpeter co-founded Sweet Farm just south of Half Moon Bay, CA with his wife Anna Sweet out of the recognition that industrialized farming has had a profoundly negative impact on the way the world feeds itself. 

Nate (a Ph.D. engineer in the nuclear industry), Anna (CEO of Bad Robot Games), and an incredible team bring their analytical mindsets together to make Sweet Farm more than a farm animal rescue, but also a place of education, inspiration, and innovation through animal rescue, plant based agriculture, and technology initiatives to scale accessible change in the food system globally. 

Nate and Anna are active advisors and investors in the alternative protein, agriculture technology, and sustainability sectors. 

​​​​​​​Nate is a general partner at SNØCAP, an emerging climate innovation fund that aims to enable sector shifts and unlock the potential for previously unimaginable companies to exist.
