Pluton Biosciences has reached the finalist round in the 2022 Radicle Carbon & Soil Competition, sponsored by Radicle Growth in partnership with UPL.
The Radicle Challenge was pioneered by Radicle Growth, a company that invests in innovative ag and food tech start-ups, ensuring that powerful, disruptive technologies reach their full potential. The Challenge recognizes the best and brightest entrepreneurs solving a problem related to key investment themes, or looking to disrupt an existing business model in the ag and food industries.
Start-up finalists pitch to a panel of world-class judges, with the winning company receiving an investment of $1 million, and invaluable access to Radicle’s ecosystem of intelligence, opportunities, and relationships.
“We’re thrilled to be a finalist in The Radicle Carbon & Soil Challenge by UPL, and proud to be recognized for our innovation in this area.” - Dr. Barry Goldman, Chief Science Officer
The final competition will be held on March 21, 2022.
At Pluton Biosciences, we are making discovery of novel microbes not only possible, but also commercially viable. Our revolutionary Micromining Innovation Engine, a tool like no other, empowers the Pluton Biosciences team to discover novel microbes in months, not years, using a fraction of the staff employed by other laboratories.
Pluton quickly and inexpensively taps into the diverse world of bacteria, fungi, amoebae, and viruses, to discover and develop next-generation products to address challenges to the climate, agriculture, pharmaceutical, biomaterials, and bioremediation sectors.
