The FAMAE Foundation Competition received more than 4500 entries from across the globe.
Pebble Lab’s Directed Biotics technology has passed through the second round of the competition, and Pebble Labs is now in the top 100 companies (the top 2.5% of all the companies they have reviewed) of the competition. They are now a candidate for the top prize. The final round of selection occurs in September, 2020 and the winning entrant will receive a prize of $2 million Euros.
What is Directed Biotics technology? It is a proprietary platform technology that is a rapid response solution to emerging diseases in plant and animal food production. Directed Biotics eliminates pathogens using an RNAi “probiotic approach.” Natural biological molecules are used by the plant’s and animal’s innate immune system to fight disease.
