Matt Jorgensen

Matt Jorgensen was cofounder and Co-CEO of Josephine, a social enterprise helping home cooks share food with their friends, neighbors, and communities. Josephine was committed to advocating for and empowering cooks— by intentionally engaging with diverse communities, sponsoring legislation, and incorporating cooks into decision making and ownership of the platform they are helping build. Matt has a bad memory, so he thinks a lot about the future. Specifically, he is excited about the possibilities for distributed ownership and more inclusive labor opportunities in the new economy.

”I am grateful to represent a group of activists and food entrepreneurs who care deeply about inclusive opportunities in the emerging economy. Home cooking advocacy is so much bigger than any one group or organization and has the potential to affect many California's communities immediately, as well as food policy across the U.S. for years to come.”
