Biomyc is a grand finalist at SSF18
Biomyc is one of three winners in 2018 at the Sustainable Future Forum, initiated by the Green for Growth Fund (GGF).
First Biomyc qualified for a spot among the top 15 start-ups and was selected from more than 260 entries from 80 countries worldwide, covering an impressive range of creative high-impact solutions to ‘green’ the way we produce and consume. Then Biomyc was invited to Frankfurt on 25 June for the clim@ pitching event where an experienced jury selected the company as one of five grand-finalists that went on to compete for awards at the Sustainable Future Forum.
And finally, at the Sustainable Future Forum, Biomyc presented in front of a panel of expert judges and over 250 international investors, financial institutions and climate action leaders and was awarded EUR 10,000 for their novel approach in developing sustainable packaging solutions out of agricultural waste and mushroom mycelium.
