Darko Mandich - Cofounder & CEO @MeliBio

Plant-based honey!

Episode highlights in 5-min video

  1. MeliBio started as a precision fermentation company yet pivoted towards a plant-based product to avoid remaining as a “garage science project” for too long, without fulfilling their mission.

  2. Darko experienced first-hand the hurdles of building not one but two manufacturing facilities in his previous jobs. He’s now outsourcing that for MeliBio and focusing on building a great team that improves the science and the brand for their customers.

  3. Coming from a place of scarcity of resources, Darko is the only biofounder I’ve heard talk about the importance of using venture capital as a launchpad, which means making the right decisions to reach profitability.

PS: HAPPY 4th-year BIRTHDAY, MeliBio 🥳!! Looking forward to trying out Mellody on my pancakes very soon 🍯.
