Dr. Ina Henkel holds a doctorate in nutritional science and has conducted research at the University of Potsdam on issues including future world nutrition. In the process, she came into contact with insects as an alternative source of protein in Asia and Africa. Together with two colleagues, she founded EntoNative GmbH in 2017 as a spin-off from the University of Potsdam. Under the brand TENETRIO, the start-up develops and produces insect-based dog food with the alternative protein of the yellow mealworm. This is good for the dog and good for the environment. She tells us in our Career Talk how an initial research idea can become a company.
