Susanne Glørsen is a renowned early-stage sustainability investor who took her fascination with the potential of fungi to the next level: she created an award, called the Future Is Fungi. In this episode, Susanne talks about the award and introduces us to the inaugural winners including the bioremediation company novobiom, as well as Oona Snoeyenbos-West, whose company MycoMine solves the "forever chemical" quandary through mycelium cleanup, and Jens Laurids Sørensen, Associate Professor at Aalborg University who is making batteries out of fungi.

I know a thing or two about fungi (except how to pronounce it) but was blown away by some of these innovative applications. I can also recommend the book that Oona mentions in the episode: Entangled Life: How Fungi Make Our Worlds, Change Our Minds and Shape Our Futures by Merlin Sheldrake
