Liz is finishing her PhD in Bio-Chemical Engineering and is one of the co-founders of Poliloop. Their mission is to provide an eco-friendly and scalable answer to the plastic problem, so that our environment doesn’t have to suffer.

In this episode, we talk about the hard process of developing a bacteria cocktail that consumes plastic and the rewarding moments after they discovered it.


Advice from Liz

Don’t be scared into complacency.

Just go with it. Trust your intuition because it’s telling you something for a reason and go with it. Take the chance. It might not work out. Chances are it might not. But when it does work out, it’s so amazing and you feel that you’re building something for yourself and for your loved ones.

So I recommend everyone who has a great idea and who has this spirit of entrepreneurship. Just try and don’t be afraid of failing.

Liz is also shares with us her experience during the days when Krisztina Lévay and she were putting a lot of hours in the lab.
