About The Company:
Orbillion is a top-tier cell-cultured meat company that crafts heritage meats from wagyu beef, wild elk, lamb, and American bison. After only 4 months of development time, Orbillion presented three of its four different flavorful meats in a first-ever exclusive tasting in San Francisco this March.
Orbillion is led by CEO Patricia Bubner, PhD, CTO Gabriel Levesque-Tremblay, PhD, and COO Samet Yildirim, MSc, MBS. Together, the three founders have over 30 years of combined experience in rapid development and scale-up of mammalian cell culture as well as business and product development.
Orbillion also has an all-star advisory board, which includes high-profile food and biotech experts such as Matt Croughan (ex-Genentech, ex-Sapphire Energy, ex-KGI), Ron Shigeta (ex-IndieBio), Guy Crims (Master Wagyu Butcher at Niku Steakhouse, the best steakhouse in SF), Jay Keasling (UC Berkeley professor and entrepreneur), and Caio Malufe (ex-Cargill).
Also this year, the team went through Y Combinator and has raised a total of $6.4M from experienced food and agriculture investors and science-savvy angel investors including: At One Ventures (investors in Climax Foods, Finless Foods, Wild Earth), FoundersX Ventures (investors in SpaceX), Prithi Ventures (investors in Mission Barns, Turtle Tree Labs), Quiet Capital, and others. And just recently, they graduated from Creative Destruction Lab’s Climate Stream.
Now, Orbillion is focused on building out the team and bringing their first product – fine Wagyu beef – up to pilot scale.
