BioBQ is a cultivated meat company, which means we grow meat using cells from the animals, rather than the slaughtered parts of animals. Based in Austin, Texas, known for BBQ, we aim to be the first to offer cultivated beef jerky and beef brisket. The foundation of our BioBQing process is a unique cell scaffolding technology that helps create tasty layers and marbling.

Katie Kam hasn’t eaten brisket since 1996. She’s hoping to get her next bite about three years from now. That’s when Kam expects BioBQ, the company she started with cofounder Janet Zoldan in late 2018, will harvest its first lab-grown brisket. Kam and Zoldan want the world’s first lab-grown barbecue to be produced or, as they describe it, “cultivated,” in Austin.
