Egg Substitute Startup Supported by Bill Gates, Khosla Ventures, and Paypal Co-founder

Hampton Creek Foods, a business startup headquartered in San Francisco, has received numerous support, including those from Microsoft founder Bill Gates, Paypal co-founder Peter Thiel, and Khosla Ventures, a venture capital fund established by Sun Microsystems co-founder Vinod Khosla, to fund its efforts of searching for plant substitutes for eggs.

To date, the company has analyzed about 1,500 types of plants from more than 60 countries. The bigwig investors believe that plant-based substitutes can improve people’s health, particularly in heavily meat-eating countries such as the United States.
