70/30 Food Tech Launches Mycelium Research Lab and Successfully Closes Seed Extension
SINGAPORE, Feb. 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- 70/30 Food Tech, a Singaporean holding company with operations in China and other parts of Asia, is actively developing low-cost whole-cut mycelium-based protein solutions. These innovative products are positioned as affordable and high-quality alternatives to traditional animal-based proteins, tailored for the Asian market. The company introduced mushroom-soy-based protein products for B2B (business-to-business) clients, particularly targeting white-collar workers in China. Guaka, the Chinese restaurant chain specializing in light and healthy food, with an estimated 1 million end consumers in total across all its locations, is one of the buyers of the B2B solutions. 70/30 Food Tech Collaboration with Light Food Chain Guaka "Despite facing challenges in 2023 related to the post-pandemic and economic conditions, we maintain a positive outlook on the growth potential of the plant-based sector in Asia - especially if we can provide affordable and healthier alternatives to animal protein. We can achieve this with fungi biomass fermentation." said CEO & Founder, Eve Samyuktha. In a recent financial milestone, 70/30 Food Tech successfully closed its seed-extension round fundraising for an undisclosed amount. The round garnered substantial support from investors, including Better Bite Ventures and follow-on investments from its seed investors. The primary use of funds is to launch the 70/30 Mycelium Research Lab to develop fungi-based biomass ingredients. "We believe that mycelium-based sustainable protein products can be a gateway to broader consumer adoption in Asia, especially given the familiarity and positive perception of fungi in the region. We liked 70/30 Food Tech's product pipeline and unique go-to-market strategy.", said Michal Klar, Founding Partner of Better Bite Ventures. The company started its initial pilot-scale experiments in biomass fermentation technologies in 2021 at the Shanghai Academy of Agricultural Sciences, primarily to develop cost effective alternative proteins. After surveying several B2B customers, the company states that the financial aspect plays a pivotal role in the decision-making process of food services when considering a switch from animal-based to plant-based suppliers. 70/30 Mycelium - Shredded Chicken Alternative "Achieving cost-efficiency is crucial and food businesses in China and other parts of Asia will likely be interested in products that can offer competitive pricing compared to animal-based products and this in turn, can attract a larger market share and drive adoption.", said Doris Lee, CEO of GFIC, the consultancy that focuses on accelerating the alternative protein industry development in China. Biomass fermentation yields high-quality protein with amino acid ratios equal to or better than animal protein. The resulting product also has a texture akin to animal flesh, especially poultry and seafood. It also eliminates the need for the extrusion process commonly associated with soy-based protein production, which is a unit operation that makes the soy-based alternative labeled as 'processed' food. Through the use of specially mutated fungi strains and bioreactor process designs, the company follows a close-to-market commercialization approach, while ensuring safety and quality. 70/30 Mycelium Research Lab is strategically situated within a renowned biotech startup incubator. The incubator also provided financial support as it identified 70/30 Food Tech as an impact project working on sustainable solutions for battling climate change. Open for Collaboration 70/30 Food Tech is open to collaborations with potential research partners, future clients, suppliers of feedstock, and early-stage investors interested in the biotech and alternative protein sector.

SMARTKEM ANNOUNCES JOINT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT WITH TIANMA
MANCHESTER, England, Feb. 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- Smartkem, Inc. (OTCQB: SMTK), a company seeking to reshape the world of electronics with its disruptive organic thin-film transistors (OTFTs) that have the potential to drive the next generation of displays, today announced that it has entered into a joint development agreement with Shanghai Tianma Microelectronics Co., Ltd. to integrate Smartkem's Organic Thin-Film Transistor (OTFT) technology with Tianma's oxide transistors to develop OTFT-based microarray biochips. Devices made using the combination of complementary transistor polarities (CMOS) will include logic gates, both analog and digital, and these will be used to amplify and process signals generated by TFT-based sensor devices. Smartkem Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Ian Jenks comments, "This project is expected to demonstrate that Smartkem's unique technology can be used successfully to develop a new type of biochip using our OTFTs and Tianma's backplane. If successful, this collaboration could create another important market for our technology." Whilst CMOS devices using oxide and OTFT have been trialled before with promising results published in scientific journals, this will be the first time that Smartkem's OTFTs will be combined with oxide transistors in a commercial setting. The high charge mobility organic transistors of Smartkem at short transistor channel lengths, which represents its ability to drive current, is intended to surpass the performance of previous test results of the OTFT/oxide combination. If successful, the company believes that the integration of OTFT on oxide will open the possibility of large area, high noise margin, low power logic devices for a range of sensor and internet of things (IOT) applications that do not require high frequency operation of CMOS silicon devices. Oxide transistors are already scaled to Gen 8.5 substrates (2.25m x 2.5m) and Smartkem's solution processable OTFT is compatible with amorphous silicon (a-Si) process lines. a-Si processes currently run on Gen 10.5 substrates which are 2.94m x 3.37m in size. The overall production cost of the logic devices using organic-oxide CMOS is anticipated to be substantially lower than for silicon of the same size due to the low cost per area processes used for TFT fabrication. This is due to the substrate size difference, the largest Gen10.5 substrate being 135X larger in area than a 12" wafer. The project involves collaborative work with Prof Xiaojun Guo's group at Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU), which will be responsible for device architecture, process-to-design methodologies, and sensor integration. SmartKem and SJTU recently published a joint paper in Nature Communications on their work to integrate OTFT with III-V semiconductor micro-LED wafers for high brightness displays.

With new technologies emerging such as artificial intelligence, there is no time like the present to help your small business grow by taking advantage of the online world. A GoDaddy 2023 global survey examined the status of small businesses including their ways to reach customers and survive in highly competitive markets. APAC countries surveyed, including Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, showed use of a business website, online store, ecommerce or a combination of them ranking at 57% of survey respondents. These results support having a strong online presence with multiple complementary channels can be vital for businesses to thrive and grow in today's competitive digital environments. With this in mind, GoDaddy shares five tips to help your small business grow with an online presence. It starts with a domain name When getting started, check availability of domain names for the desired name. A domain name can be considered a business' piece of real estate and identity on the internet. It is a way for customers to easily find a business online. Choosing and registering a domain name for your business that's memorable is increasingly important in an expanding digital marketplace, as it helps to shape your online business identity. If the .com extension is not available, there are many new extensions available, such as: .shop; .co.; .photography; .tech, to name a few, for you to consider which can help define your business. After choosing a domain name register it with a reliable hosting provider right away. Build a website Websites help create visibility for small businesses and acts as a home base for your business on the internet, even if you have a brick-and-mortar store. A website can help consumers easily find your business, learn about your product offerings and services, and contact you for more information. A well-designed professional looking website can offer an engaging customer experience with the use of text along with photo images and video. Having a website gives you control over the messaging about your business and can serve as a hub by linking with your social media channels. Listen to your customers The growth of your business is directly related to customer satisfaction. Listen to your customers and pay attention to the needs of your target market. Identify their problems and pain points. How can your offerings act as a solution? Is it possible to develop new products to help solve these problems? Engage for customer feedback and keep an eye on customer behaviour changes and audience interests. Develop a business support system By developing a strong business support system, entrepreneurs can benefit from new ideas on ways to address a particular issue or ideas for growth. In addition to close family and friends, consider mentors and business coaches who can provide relevant insights into your business. Review your business plan Many entrepreneurs make a business plan at the beginning of their business journey, but do not take the time to revisit it from time-to-time. So, analysing aspects of that business plan like target audience and competitors, examining cash flows and what can make the business profitable, while also checking timelines to reach business goals is all equally essential to help ensure continued growth of your business.
