Shara Ticku

C16 Biosciences

Shara Ticku is the CEO and co-founder of C16 Biosciences. C16 Bio uses biotechnology to produce sustainable alternatives to palm oil. Palm oil is the world's most popular vegetable oil, but its production depends on tropical rainforest deforestation that emits 1.5 gigatons of CO2 annually. C16 Bio's technology uses microbes to produce an oil that looks and functions just like palm oil, but doesn't destroy the planet. Prior to founding C16 Bio, Shara worked at Goldman Sachs, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, and the United Nations. She holds a BA/BBA from the University of Texas at Austin and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
