Lunchtime Pitch

DENVER, Colo., May 07, 2024 ( Kraig Biocraft Laboratories (OTCQB:KBLB), Hims & Hers Health, Inc. (NYSE:HIMS), Nuwellis (Nasdaq:NUWE), Clearmind Medicine Inc. (Nasdaq:CMND), and reAlpha Tech (Nasdaq:AIRE).

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories (OTCQB:KBLB) is attempting to commercialize Spider Silk and completed the spring production trials, with the results exceeding expectations.

Spider Silk has long been sought after as the “Holy Grail,” of materials and is tougher than Kevlar, yet the fibers can be woven into garments.

Spider Silk applications range from mundane clothing to high performance athletic or military protective textiles, cosmetics, engineering textiles, fiber optics, and medical applications, fibers, ligaments, skin grafts and tissue engineering. It’s thought that, someday, spider silk will be molded into a biodegradable “bioplastic” and help relieve the harmful plastic waste cycle.

“The BAM-1 parental lines have proven to be the strongest and most resilient we have ever fielded,” commented Company founder and CEO, Kim Thompson. “This production run greatly exceeded our targets and has prepared us for the next phase of our business plan. With these production trials successfully concluded, we are now aggressively implementing the next phase of our business plan, which will expand our operations and target multiple production locations in multiple countries.”

Thompson and world-renowned sericulture expect, Dr. Nirmal Kumar, spent the last two months directly overseeing Kraig’s trials, selecting facilities for expansion, reviewing operational protocols, and meeting with officials and business leaders regarding the Company’s immediate plans.

Thompson is now returning to the U.S. to enact the next stages of its spider silk production expansion plan and complete the Company’s transition from a technology developer to a large-scale spider silk manufacturer.
