GeneTether Therapeutics Inc.
HEALTHCARE / BIOTECH
A genetic medicines company focused on creating best-in-class gene editing therapies based on its proprietary platform, GeneTether Therapeutics Inc. is developing its transformative proprietary platform technology to significantly increase the efficiency of DNA insertion into the genome for gene correction. The company is leveraging its platform technology to develop curative therapies for the treatment of rare genetic diseases. Thanks to its proprietary method to “tether” donor DNA templates to the genome editing complex, the template is readily available for use during the genome editing repair stage. The company’s wholly-owned platform has the potential to significantly improve upon current gene editing methods by actively positioning reparative DNA fragments, which are referred to as donor DNA templates, near the location of double strand breaks in a cell’s DNA. Operating between San Lorenzo, CA and Vancouver, BC, GeneTether’s proof of concept study demonstrated an approximately seven-times-higher gene editing efficiency as compared to the same gene editing payload without application of GeneTether’s technology. GeneTether already has a patent issued in Australia and the company received a notice of allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office in February 2022, in addition to other jurisdictions that the company had filed in, as well.

Engaged in the acquisition, exploration, and development of critical mineral assets, Fireweed Zinc is a junior mining company focused on advancing its Macmillan Pass Zinc-Lead-Silver property in Yukon. The company recently signed a letter of intent to acquire a 100 percent interest in the Mactung Tungsten Project located in Yukon and Northwest Territories. The project, which sits immediate adjacent to the company’s Macmillan Pass Zinc-Lead-Silver Project, is one of the world’s largest and highest-grade tungsten deposits. It is also one of the few potential sources of scale for tungsten that doesn’t come from China. Although Macmillan Pass remains the company’s flagship project, the addition of Mactung and its recent staking of Gayna River puts Fireweed on the path to becoming one of the leading critical minerals focused companies. The Gayna River project, located in Northwest Territories, contains the critical metals zinc, gallium, and germanium in addition to lead and silver. The geological environment has globally unique similarities to the very-high grade Kipushi mine and recent academic studies indicate the potential for very-high grade massive sulphide targets which were previously not recognized.
Sprout AI is a vertical farming technology company that manufactures scalable AI controlled grow “habitats” that can be installed in any existing or new indoor space throughout the world. The company is in the business of planning, designing, manufacturing and/or assembling sustainable and scalable AI-controlled vertical cultivation equipment for indoor vertical farming. The adaptive technology produces an environment with improved growing parameters and early detection of adverse conditions, resulting in consistent and repeatable crops with shorter cultivation cycles independent of geographic climates. The self-contained multilevel rolling rack technology increases the cubic cultivation area while mitigating the risk of outside and cross-contaminants. The technology also uses dual plant and root zones that provide a wide range of effectiveness in different kinds of environments. It also uses fogponics that deliver nutrients needed for growth and only uses a fraction of the water compared to aquaponics, hydroponics, and aeroponic irrigation technologies. The rise in demand for urban food security will be fuelling the growth of vertical farming. Securing revenue within urban centres, providing pure, clean, longer shelf life and easily traceable food, with minimal impact on the environment in terms of water use, chemical, fertilizer, and greenhouse emissions associated with cultivation, processing, and distribution represent the tangible impact that vertical farming delivers.
