A promising Biotech startup, with 20 million in funding, asked me by the end of 2013 for help with name, logo, identity and website. Head office and laboratory was to be located north of the Arctic Circle in the Norwegian university and biotech hub; Tromso, on the edge of the Barents Sea where the the cold snowmelt and the warm Gulf Stream meet and creates a rich biological life. The business idea was to develop industrial
enzyme solutions for upgrading bio-waste – fx feathers – to valuable protein. Both the Danish founder and the Norwegian investor was keenly interested in the Viking age. In the spring of 2015 after two years of succesfull product development and the establishment of headquarters, laboratory and development department in Copenhagen, the investor decided to stop the funding.
