Featured Speaker: Colossal's De-Extinction Mission is Just Beginning: A Conversation with Ben Lamm
Join serial entrepreneur Ben Lamm, CEO and Co-founder of Colossal for a conversation about the future of de-extinction and why it’s not just a big business, but vital work in the face of a changing climate. The discussion will center around the opportunities in de-extinction technologies, the business case for de-extinction, and the opportunities Colossal is pursuing across through cutting-edge science and technologies.
Since launching in September 2021, Colossal has raised $225M in total funding. In addition to announcing the de-extinction of the Tasmanian Tiger and Woolly Mammoth, the company recently launched its Avian Genomics Group to pursue the de-extinction of the iconic Dodo. Colossal creates disruptive technologies for extinct species restoration, critically endangered species protection and the repopulation of critical ecosystems that support the continuation of life on Earth. The company’s technologies will also have the potential to advance human health, enhance food production, reduce environmental impact, and optimize animal health and welfare.
