Take full advantage of future tech

Future healthspan-extending medical technologies are still decades away from widespread use. The problem?
They won't work as well on old cells.

Here are just a few in development right now:

Gene therapies

CRISPR is one of the largest breakthroughs in recent science. This gene editing technique allows us to make modifications more precisely and on a larger scale than ever before.

Organ regeneration

Organ regeneration is one of the most popular topics in research today, with a focus on heart and lung regeneration. It will be key in the future repair and replacement of failing organs.

Stem Cells

Stem cells have vast regenerative abilities. They have the capability of becoming many different tissues and cell types, with many potential .

Our Story

Acorn was born out of the University of Waterloo's genetic engineering team. Starting out in Velocity Science on-campus, we have sinced moved into the Garage and accumulated funding from AC Jumpstart, Communitech, Velocity and YC Fellowship. On top of that, we are a part of the Creative Destruction Lab and have ties with many investors, scientists, and advisors.

We're passionate about the future of biotechnology and can't wait for what's yet to come. Our dream starts with preservation, but eventually, we hope to expand and take part in further research ourselves.
