The first edition of the Regional Bioeconomy Investment Forum was inaugurated on September 14th and 15th, organized by Consorzio Italbiotec in collaboration with the Lombardy Green Chemistry Association in the context of the MPowerBIO project and the Towards Green Transition Facility.
The initiative represented an opportunity for ten of the most innovative Italian biotechnology companies to pitch their sustainable business models in front of investors, financial consultants, and venture capitals.
Our congratulations to the three winning companies:
- Vegea, producer of organic, cruelty-free fabrics obtained from grape marc;
- Packtin, start-up that converts waste from the food supply chain into biodegradable supplements, gels and coatings;
- Rewow, which gives new life to exhausted food oil to produce biopolymers.
