BOLINGBROOK, Ill. (PRWEB) December 02, 2020
Mycocycle, Inc., a leader in using mycoremediation to process toxins out of waste, today announced the launch of its StartEngine equity crowdfunding campaign. The StartEngine platform gives the public the opportunity to invest in startup companies in return for equity in the company.
"We are thrilled to be participating in the new world of equity crowdfunding,” said Joanne Rodriguez, Mycocycle founder and CEO. “Mycocycle is committed to using the science of mushrooms to divert waste from landfills. With only 15 percent of landfill space left, we must work to find a better solution. Together, we can change how we view waste: as a resource, not a burden."
Mycocycle uses mushrooms to remove toxins from waste and convert it into reusable resources. The company is an early-stage, pre-revenue startup that has lab-based proof of concept on multiple treatment methodologies. The patent-pending process accelerates and emulates the process of breaking down materials in nature, but in an enclosed and controlled environment. The company is raising funding to support the simultaneous scale up and derisk of its technology.
“We encourage anyone interested in helping the environment to consider investing,” Rodriguez stated. “With the help of crowdfunding, we can help launch the waste management industry into the future.”
