nanoGUNE's start-up Evolgene, at Crecer+ investment forum
NanoGUNE's start-up company Evolgene will participate in the next Crecer+ investment forum, organized by Orkestra - Basque Institute of Competitiveness (Deusto University), together with the Basque Health Cluster and Biocrew.
The event will take place on November 12 at 15:00h at the University of Deusto (Bilbao Campus). 11 entrepreneurial projects in the biosciences-health field, including Evolgene, will be presented to investors.
Evolgene combines knowledge of industrial biotechnology, advanced materials and nanosciences for the development, production and sale of high quality nanocellulose using an exclusive patented biological technology. Nanocellulose is a biomaterial with application in multiple industrial sectors including pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, electronics, packaging, etc. in which its properties of high strength, lightness, biocompatibility and sustainability make it competitive with plastic polymers. There are also high added value applications in tissue and organ engineering, where nanocellulose is being adopted as a support in 3D tissue bioprinting or in bioelectronics. Evolgene was founded in 2018 as a spin-off from CIC nanoGUNE.
