Meeting Place for the BSF Industry:

  • Insect Schools act as a pivotal meeting place where professionals, researchers, entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts from the BSF industry converge.
  • This physical space fosters networking, collaboration, and the exchange of ideas among stakeholders, ultimately strengthening the industry’s ecosystem.

“I have always believed that a physical location has enormous benefits in sharing knowledge. By being able to meet like-minded people, sharing knowledge gets easier, faster and more fun. When there is a place to go and meet each other, it is easier to share and gain knowledge and experiences. A place where people from all backgrounds, ages and industries can come together to move the BSF industry, and ultimately our world, forward. To stop all the years of talking, and start putting intentions into practice, I took on the initiative and founded Insect School in 2022.”
