Fredericton, New Brunswick-based Mycodev Group is a biotechnology company focused on bringing to market a versatile pharmaceutical ingredient called chitosan. Co-Founder and CTO David Brown says his company takes a novel approach to producing its chitosan; it comes entirely from fungus.
Similar to how beer is brewed, Mycodev grows large amounts of fungus via a submerged fermentation process. From there they extract the chitosan, which is sold in powder form.
Brown co-founded Mycodev three years ago with his business partner, CEO Brennan Sisk. Both are New Brunswick natives and the duo is thrilled to be seeing entrepreneurial success right in their home province.
Opportunities NB (ONB) recently spoke to David Brown to learn more.
