View the livestream on YouTube starting at 4:30 PM PT on Wednesday, May 10.

Julia Collins is the founder and CEO of Planet FWD, which is empowering the next generation of sustainable consumer companies with its climate management platform. Planet FWD is focused on decarbonizing global supply chains with the belief that all organizations can achieve Net Zero. The platform is inspired by Planet FWD’s own snack brand, Moonshot, which launched in 2020 as the first climate-friendly snack brand. 

Food has always been the epicenter of Julia’s life. She spent her early career in the hospitality industry at food companies such as Union Square Hospitality Group, Mexicue, Murray’s Cheese, and Harlem Jazz Enterprises. She went on to co-found Zume Pizza, where she became the first Black woman to reach unicorn status. 

Inspired by the birth of her first son, she decided to dedicate her career to addressing the climate crisis. This was the catalyst for founding Planet FWD in 2019. 

Julia graduated from Harvard University and earned her MBA at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business. She resides in San Francisco with her two sons and partner.
