Janine Yorio of NewSeed™ Advisors has a long history in economic development and within the last few years has moved from Wall Street to green street. Seeing a growing trend in sustainable agriculture, Janine started NewSeed™ Advisors to identify, nurture and invest in companies that make agriculture more sustainable. According to the website, “Sustainable agriculture has attractive economics, marketable innovations and talented professionals, but it needs mainstream support, sophisticated financial execution, and access to capital. NewSeed™ Advisors is committed to growing companies that improve food quality and take better care of the earth.”
Named as one of Grist Magazine‘s 40 People Who Are Redefining Green, Janine took some time out to talk with me about how she got into investing in sustainable agriculture and some of the innovations that are growing out of it.
Sustainable agriculture is one of the hottest sectors for job seekers and career changers alike. The sector is growing right now and jobs that might be available in six months haven’t been announced yet. How can you get on the inside track?
