Canadian company accelerated in Ireland biotech hub, receives investment

Chinova Bioworks is pleased to announce that the company has been accepted into the prestigious IndieBio accelerator hosted by the US venture capital firm SOSV. As a part of the agreement SOSV is investing USD $100,000 in Chinova Bioworks. The intense 3 month program will take the young company from comprehensive lab screening into full beta-¬‐product development, and get samples into the hands of early adopters in the beverage industry. During the program Chinova will have access to world-class business mentors and scientists who specialize in biotechnology and end with a demo‐day pitch to potential investors and corporations. The program takes place in the European biotechnology hub of Cork, Ireland at the University College Cork.


“IndieBio is an incredible opportunity to develop our technology rapidly and effectively. We hope by the end of this program to get our first product into the hands of beverage companies who see the value of our technology to extend the natural shelf-life of premium juices.” – Natasha Dhayagude, CEO.
