Sep 14, 2021

Vogt adds extensive experience scaling breakthrough technologies from Cruise to Twitch News provided by Share this article Share this article BERKELEY, Calif., Sept. 14, 2021 /PRNewswire/ --  UPSIDE Foods , a world leader in cultivated meat, poultry and seafood (also known as cell-cultured meat), today announced the appointment of Kyle Vogt to its Board of Directors. Vogt is the Co-Founder, President and Chief Technical Officer of Cruise, the self-driving car company. As UPSIDE accelerates its path towards commercialization and prepares to bring its first consumer product to market (pending regulatory review), Vogt brings to the board over a decade of experience in founding and scaling multiple innovative tech companies, from Cruise to Twitch. "Kyle has unparalleled experience translating an extraordinary vision into groundbreaking innovation," said Uma Valeti, CEO and founder of UPSIDE Foods. "Kyle's journey reimagining the role of automobiles in our transportation system is similar to UPSIDE's vision to reimagine the role of meat, fish and poultry in our food system. We are excited for the unique perspectives he will contribute to our company's next phase of growth." Vogt has spent the last seven years developing and commercializing self-driving electric cars at Cruise. The company was acquired by General Motors (GM) to jump-start its self-driving efforts and still operates independently, with Vogt serving as one of GM's youngest senior directors. Prior to founding Cruise, Vogt helped build and launch Twitch, the world's leading live streaming platform for gamers, which was later acquired by Amazon. Before that, he co-founded video-start-ups Justin.tv and Socialcam. "When I first invested in Uma's vision in 2017, I was immediately inspired by UPSIDE's transformative potential for the environment and animal welfare," said Vogt. "My confidence that UPSIDE is the future of meat has only increased, and I'm thrilled to join the UPSIDE board as we prepare to introduce products to the public." About UPSIDE Foods Based in Berkeley, CA, UPSIDE Foods (formerly known as Memphis Meats) is reimagining meat for the 21st century -- developing new delicious new sources of meat, fish and poultry that also address environmental sustainability, animal welfare and public health concerns.
