Ginger Dosier, Founder and CEO of bioMASON (an Acorn portfolio company), was featured recently on several news sites as she supports the next round of the Green Challenge.
“This time last year, my team at bioMASON was working diligently on fundraising, networking and getting valuable input from multiple business incubators. We had heard of the Postcode Lottery Green Challenge, an international competition for green startups a few years before from Eben Bayer of Ecovative, who won in 2008.
Eben is a brilliant young entrepreneur who developed an alternative for synthetic foams and plastics from agricultural waste and the roots of mushrooms. His groundbreaking “green” concept would not have seen the light of day if Eben hadn’t registered for the Green Challenge.
In 2008 we weren’t ready to enter. In 2013, however, we felt confident that we were finally in the right spot to apply, and excited about it too. We all shared the same ambition wanting to win the 2013 edition of the Green Challenge…and we did!”
