ABOUT: Alissa Baier-Lentz is the co-founder & COO of Kintra Fibers, a material science company that makes high-performing bio-synthetic textiles that biodegrade like a natural fiber. Kintra exists to solve the microfiber pollution in the ocean and the use of fossilized carbon in fashion that traditional synthetic fabrics perpetuate. Prior to Kintra, Alissa launched and scaled HERO Backpacks. Each HERO backpack gives one day of school to a girl who will be the first in her family to graduate. After all, you can’t spell HERO without HER!

GET: To be connected to fashion brands with an interest in innovation / sustainability, and investors with an interest in the bio-based product economy / sustainability.
