At Mycocycle we can’t do what we do by ourselves. It’s take a cross-pollination of industries and experiences to move us through building not only a company, but a technology—from scratch!
I’ll work to highlight the Team and Advisors over these next few posts so you get a chance to see the depth of knowledge.
Let's talk CORE, TIME, and BALANCE. I when I think about central themes running through the early days of Mycocycle (like pre-Mycocycle, even pre-pre-Mycocycle) my mind will go to Leslie Lopes. Every good company has a core. While I will admit that I am all heart when it comes to Mycocycle, Leslie embodies the very definition of core: the central, innermost, or most essential part of anything. She lends the balance to the everyday chaos that is a part of entrepreneurial life. She could easily be called the "Joanne whisperer" because she will take the time to 'go there' with me when I'm mad/anxious/disappointed, snap me back to reality, and then rally to bring us back to our discussions of all things life, love, and mushrooms!
Always excited to take on the new endeavors she is also the voice of reason. Her creativity and her business acumen are in such a beautiful balance, she has very successfully grown her solo practice--PureMotion Creative--to the level it is today. As a solopreneur herself she understands what running all the aspects of a business looks and feels like.
Her depth of experiences help guide our decisions on marketing, branding, PR, digital media, and website. But she also guides decisions on strategy and development by paying attention and bringing fresh ideas to the table. If not for Leslie we likely would not be raising on SE today.

I, personally, have a great deal of gratitude for Leslie Lopes and the contributions she's made to Mycocycle. Because of her patience, passion, and spirit I have felt with confidence that we are growing the company of the future! Cheers to Leslie the First!
