The Life Science Cluster welcomed NoMy, C. Ranger Consulting and BioCat as members in the beginning of 2021. “NoMy is our first member company looking into the potential of fungal mycelium and will be a valuable part of our life science family innovating new foods and sustainable feeds”, says Hanne Mette Dyrlie Kristensen, CEO of The Life Science Cluster.
“The Life Science Cluster continues to grow, and we are very pleased to expand our membership base with excellent advisors and startups that we know will aid in unleashing the potential of life science in Norway,” says Hanne Mette Dyrlie Kristensen.
NoMy is an R&D company working with future green materials, new foods and sustainable feeds by harnessing the untapped potential of fungal mycelium.
“Our mission is to accelerate the green shift through cutting edge research and large scale innovation through co-creation with our strategic partners,” says Ingrid Dynna, CEO of NoMy.
In November last year Ingrid Dynna and co-founder David Andrew Quist started Norwegian Mycelium AS, called NoMy; Ingrid has a commercial background and comes from an international career in Google. David is a researcher and expert in fungal biology. They share a passion for sustainability and creating solutions that address global problems.
“We aim to forge industrial symbioses with existing biomass industries to valorize underutilized side-streams for the production of new materials, like foods and feeds – leading to greater resource efficiency, circularity and cost-competitiveness. We’re also working on building our commercial partnerships for our go-to-market.
We’re also in the midst of the R&D phase of our alternative meat products.” Ingrid Dynna says.
NoMy will be a valuable contribution to The Life Science Cluster’s thriving ecosystem.
“In addition to building our network with other members, we look forward to the potential support around financing, strategic development, regulation and policies.” Ingrid Dynna says.
