We are a small diverse team of entrepreneurs, scientists, educators, health and wellness professionals, and technologists. We’ve come together because we share...


  • A deep interest in health and science
  • A conviction that your microbiome is a critical and often ignored part of health and disease, and
  • A desire to help people make healthier choices through education and coaching on the connection between your microbiome, nutrition, and health

We’ve built leading companies and organizations before, including Tutor.com (acquired by IAC) and Centocor (acquired by Johnson & Johnson).

Mycrobiomics, parent company of MycroFriends, is backed by seed investments from Mayo Clinic Ventures and Bloomberg Beta. After we get your feedback on the MycroFriends Beta, we plan to grow our team and build all the services we hint at in the beta experience.

Have fun diving in, and contact us any time with your thoughts and questions at info@mycrobiomics.com, or through Facebook or Twitter.
