What’s new this week:

  1. Meat substitutes: Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat get most of the headlines, but big opportunities exist in lifestyle marketing and plant-based dairy.

  2. Augmented reality: Google Glass and others may have flopped, but wearable AR has practical uses for dozens of industries, with many outdoing the smart phone. The market is expected to expand to $161B in 2022, from $4B in 2016.

  3. Impossible’s Pat Brown: With Burger King debuting its Impossible Whopper nationwide this week, we reached into the archive of Hustle Con talks to share startup lessons from Impossible Foods founder Pat Brown.
