This month we welcome guest speaker Will Barker speaking on one of Auckland’s newest biotech companies, Mint Innovation.
Mint Innovation is developing recovery processes that use inexpensive chemicals and proprietary microorganisms to bind and concentrate specific metals under environmentally benign conditions.
Its platform aims to be modular and adaptable for applications such as low-grade ores, tailings and electronic wastes. It may also be tailored to help remediate environments contaminated with toxic metals.
Will is a seasoned start-up executive with a background in IP security, partnership development, building high performance teams and capital raising. He is well known to our community as the immediate past CEO of NZBIO. Prior to that he held a senior executive role at Lanzatech raising transactions in excess of $200M there.?
