Shiok Meats, the first cell-based clean meat company in Southeast Asia, was founded by scientists Sandhya Sriram and Ka Yi Ling. The company focuses mainly on cell-based seafood; and they are currently developing a shrimp substitute. The duo admittedly hasn’t faced many challenges as female entrepreneurs (or they have just ignored them, says Ka Yi). Apart from gaining respect due to their academic achievements, they believe that having strong support systems have helped them weather the trials that come with running a business. Sandhya also thinks that working with a female co-founder has been very open, collaborative, and overall just a positive experience.
