Cindy Gerhardt

Managing Director of Planet

Passionate about biology in the broadest sense. After starting my career as an academic scientist, I

discovered I am an innovator with a lot of energy to turn science into impact. Over the past 30 years, I've focused on the interphase between research and business in the food sector; developing and introducing radically new products to the market, building high performance teams, and most recently, building an open innovation ecosystem for biotech and food tech.

My values are simple: respect people, animals and our planet.

Specialities; biotech - foodtech - R&D and innovation management - inspirational leadership - change management - corporates, startups and scaleups - ecosystem development - fund raising - coaching - triple helix collaborations.
