Kent Corporation is pleased to be part of the Ag Startup Engine’s win-win investment toward advancing animal healthcare.
AMES, Iowa, March 1, 2021 – Ag Startup Engine (ASE), at the Iowa State University (ISU) Research Park, announced an initial $50,000 investment in Ames, Iowa-based startup Mazen Animal Health, with a goal to revolutionize animal disease prevention with orally-delivered vaccines. Mazen’s vaccine production platform enables vaccines to be produced in corn grain which after processing can be dosed with feed for production animals or as a treat for companion animals.
Dr. Jenny Filbey, the startup’s founder and CEO, said of the investment, “Joel Harris and Ag Startup Engine have provided tremendous support to Mazen in growing our network in the Iowa community and beyond. I am thrilled to be a part of such an innovative community making a difference in agriculture.”
