Kraig Biocraft, a developer of spider silk based fibres, has announced that its CEO, Kim Thompson, was recently recognised as one of MyTechMag magazine’s top 20 pioneering CEO’s of 2019. In the recent CEO edition, Thompson shares the incredible story of the founding of Kraig Labs, and how his determination delivered success against overwhelming odds.

In selecting the top 20 pioneering CEO’s of 2019, MyTechMag selection criteria included a review of the complexity of the challenges overcome, the growth of the underlying business, and the CEO’s ability to harness their team’s potential, according to Kraig.

“I am honoured to have been selected for this recognition. MyTechMag’s award comes on the verge of a very exciting time for Kraig Labs, as we expect to soon be formally launching commercial scale production of our eco-friendly recombinant spider silk. Kraig Labs has been pioneering the way forward for cost effective spider silk production and today’s recognition of my work and our company’s role in bringing this innovation to market is an honour. Together, our team has faced and concurred numerous obstacles that stood between us and our goal. In that spirit, I accept this award as recognition for the entire Kraig Labs team, including our valued employees and shareholders,” CEO and founder Thompson said. (GK)
