It's been less than 10 months since our official launch last March, but it feels like a few years have already passed...
Thanks to the willingness of fungi enthusiasts to connect and collaborate from across the world, MycoStories has gone from a simple vision to a multifaceted network supporting entrepreneurs, researchers, citizen scientists and artists in the rapidly sporing world of fungi conservation and innovation.
I'm incredibly grateful for our fast-growing community of 20,000 followers and the hundreds of people who have paved the foundations and building blocks to what I hope will become the global network supporting fungi conservation and fungi-powered innovation that disrupts our global economy.
Since its launch, beyond broadening the awareness of fungi and connecting stakeholders within the fungi ecosystem, MycoStories has worked with a company launching a new styrofoam packaging alternative, supported a promising mycelium leather scale-up, connected investors to a dozen early stage-ups, introduced profiles to talent seeking companies, and partnered with other global sustainability networks such as Thought For Food and ChangeNOW.
I raise my glass with all of you to celebrate the countless 2023 milestones achieved in the fields of remediation, carbon storage, energy production and storage, sustainable agriculture and forestry, cultivation and automation, alternative protein, fashion, products and packaging, healthcare, mental health, wellbeing and many more. Join me for a richer 2024 when I shall dedicate my time expanding MycoStories' reach and expertise to support the pioneers working with our fungal allies towards a more sustainable future.
