Food technology is something we’ve been interested in at Lemnos since day one. We think that advances in the hardware that creates and interacts with food will continue to increase in quality and improve consumer satisfaction.
We made our investment in Scott and Shireen over 2.5 years ago. When they first pitched us it was immediately clear they possessed the two traits that many great founders have, a deep passion for their product and the knowledge that this is something the world needs. Going from that first bulky prototype to the pre-production units they have today has been a journey and we’re thrilled to have been part of it.
They recently closed a $9.2 million round led by Foundry Group and Brad Feld will be joining their board.
To date, they’ve been able to develop some great technology which focuses on the detection of incredibly small quantities of gluten in food. A few weeks ago, I was having brunch with Scott and got to see it in action. This round will let them continue to work towards a world where people are empowered to understand their food and make the right choices for their diet and their health.
