SKRATCH

FUELING THE DARK & LIGHT SIDE OF THE AMERICAN DREAM

Defining the American Dream is as complicated and diverse as the people who make up this country. Always caught somewhere in between his Chinese heritage and his identity as an American, Dr. Lim will share his path from the streets of Los Angeles to the roads of the Tour de France to an ominous bird dropping that all conspired to the genesis of Skratch Labs—a company founded on the realization that no matter where you find yourself in life, you can always start from scratch.

Upon completing his doctorate in physiology at CU Boulder, Dr. Allen Lim worked on the Pro Cycling Tour, where he began preparing food and drink from scratch for athletes after they complained that conventional sports nutrition made them sick. That experience, led him to co-author the Feed Zone series of cookbooks with Chef Biju Thomas and found Skratch Labs—a company helping people to become better through all-natural sports nutrition alternatives.
