Miranda Alldritt joins Bioform as chief business officer
The ex-Copperleaf exec brings vast experience to the cleantech startup at a time of imminent growth.
Vancouver-based startup Bioform Solutions Inc., a sustainability-focused cleantech startup, announced the appointment of Miranda Alldritt as chief business officer. Alldritt arrives via Copperleaf, where she most recently held the role of president. Of note during her tenure was Copperleaf’s October 2021 IPO, which saw the company surpass the billion-dollar valuation threshold.
A homecoming of sorts: It’s a full-circle moment for Alldritt. Bioform is a UBC spinoff, which is fitting as she completed a degree at the school in 1996. Additionally—and prior to Copperleaf—she held the position of software product manager at Teradici, a Burnaby-based software company.
Why she was brought on: “Miranda combines strong management skills with extensive experience in business leadership and engineering capacities. She has a proven track record in growing early-stage technology companies and understands the importance of building strong relationships with industry partners and academia to advance product development and growth”, said Dr. Jordan MacKenzie, CEO and CTO of Bioform, in a release. “We look forward to leveraging her experience within our organization to bring Bioform’s novel technologies to the marketplace and eliminate ubiquitous single-use plastics”.
Why she bought in: Bioform promises to help rid the world of plastic-filled oceans. The company’s solution allows its customers to rapidly produce products made from kelp or wood rather than plastics. Alldrit calls the technology “incredibly elegant in its simplicity.”
“What’s exciting to me about joining Bioform is the ability to apply innovation that will really have a global impact. There are a vast number of applications that we can help with in different use cases and around the world. I feel really privileged to be part of the team and I look forward to working with our customers and partners to develop those different applications and get them out there into the hands of consumers where we can make a meaningful impact on the health of our planet and our waterways,” she continues.
Alldritt assumed the role on April 1, 2022.
