Hitesh Manglani is co-founder and CEO of Supercarb Inc., a performance textiles company. Previously at a venture-backed food startup, Manglani commercialized the science of novel protein fibers for plant-based meat to the market in record time. Before that, he led R&D at a South Carolina textile mill for three years, managing a technical textile portfolio worth $11M. Manglani is on a mission to replace synthetic fibers from the textile industry through his subject matter expertise.

Supercarb converts sugars from waste biomass like seaweed and citrus peel waste into tunable, high-performance, biodegradable fibers. Due to their superior properties, these low-impact fibers enable textile fashion and industrial brands to significantly increase their revenue and sustainability impact.
