The ÅForsk Foundation, together with the industry organisation Swedish Incubators & Science Parks (SISP), has named Sweden’s ten most innovative entrepreneurs for 2019.
Betty Collin, one of the two founders of the company MISO (Microbial Solutions), was one of the winners awarded the ÅForsk Entrepreneur Scholarship of SEK 200,000 per winner at the Sveriges Innovationsriksdag conference in Karlskrona on the 8th of May.
Based on microbiological research and using wild yeast as a starting point, MISO develops a fully Swedish and unique product for winemakers and the brewery industry. MISO’s concept is based on isolating wild yeast strains from nature that can be used by e.g. winemakers and breweries. This opens up completely new possibilities for producing authentic locally produced beverages in the true sense of the word.
“It is a great honour and fantastic acknowledgement of our work. It gives me and Stina-Mina Ehn Börjesson, co-founder of MISO, the opportunity to invest more in the development of both the concept and the company,” says Betty.
Betty Collin and Stina-Mina Ehn Börjesson, the two founders of MISO, have an extensive academic history and work both with the company and as a senior lecture and an instructor in microbiology, respectively, at Kristianstad University.
MISO is one of the companies of Krinova’s Innovation Arena.
