Start-Up Success Story: From pitching start-up to summit partner, an interview with Adi Goldman, CEO and Co-Founder, Biotic
Why did you participate in the Rethinking Materials Summit in 2022 and what did you take away from it?
We participated as part of the ‘New Technology Showcase’ in Rethinking Materials 2022, and had an amazing experience and networking – from connecting with startups that share the same goals, to ecosystem leaders, innovators, investors, and more.
Share your secret – how have you accelerated your progress in the past year? Are there any partnerships/funding rounds that you are excited about?
In almost the half year since the Rethinking Materials event, we’ve completed our Seed round, tripled our staff, expanded our labs capacity, and began the building of our first pilot plant. We are working on further partnerships behind the scenes and will have more announcements to share over the next 12 months as we work with brands to develop breakthrough technology for their customers to enjoy.
What’s next for material innovation? What new technologies excite you and what trends can you predict in this sector in the next 5-10 years?
We believe that the increasing amount of new regulations, and corporate commitments to move to use of alternative materials in their supply chains, will bring to a bloom in new materials innovations within the next decade.
We hope the strive for new materials, from all industries, will be enabled through hybrid approach, combining market needs through one stop shop complexes, providing plastics alternatives, bio-stimulants, alternative proteins, animal feeds and more
Who are you hoping to meet at the summit in 2023?
Rethinking Materials is a smoothly run event, and one of the most relevant for new and alternative materials startups and well established companies to be part of. This year, we will have a booth, and expect to both create new, deepen and broaden our connections with both potential future customers for piloting as well as potential partners for compounding/masterbatch producing/bio-additives companies and new opportunities
Bioticare returning to Rethinking Materials as Gold Partners for 2023. We look forward to meeting in person with Adi and the Biotic team at the Rethinking Materials in London on May 16-17. Book your ticket now to join us!
