A love story from Denmark to Scotland – Interview with Martin Jensen
Helping put together the idea and team that spawned Roslin Technologies, and discovering the cutting-edge science being undertaken in Edinburgh, is like a love story from his home country of Denmark to Scotland, according to Martin Jensen, a partner at JBI Equity, one of our original investors.
Speaking in an interview with Roslin Tech’s David Clarke, Martin recalls how his work in the pork industry in China in 2008 included a project on tracing the DNA of the meat sold in the shops there. That task brought him to the Roslin Institute, a step that eventually led to his involvement in establishing the company.
Martin also discusses what he sees as the most important issues in AgTech at the moment, and talks about building a “mini Silicon Valley for animal Sciences” in Midlothian.
