WHO IS NORTH SPORE?
This Maine-based company founded by three college colleagues represents how passionate entrepreneurs of the food system can create new ways to reshape the system. North Spore commercializes a variety of mushroom production tools, especially edible mushroom spawns – which are the equivalent of the seeds for the plants. Their main segment of clients are small farmers and home growers. With its strong value for collaboration and knowledge sharing, North Spore is demystifying mushroom production for thousands of people.

FACING COVID-19 PANDEMIC
As any individual or organization of this planet at this point, North Spore has also been impacted by coronavirus health and economic challenges. On the one hand, the company is adjusting to some of its small farms’ customer demand decreasing, like local restaurants. On the other hand, the company's online sales are booming to address home growers' demand, especially due to the fact that people are spending more time at home and want activities to do during their spare time as well as guaranteeing their supply of food.
DAISA, through its special initiative DAISA Capital, is looking forward to move to the next project phase and start approaching patient capital investors in order to raise the right capital to allow North Spore to keep “spreading the spore” and supporting more farmers and people to have good food locally, and, sometimes, at home.
