Burcon Nutrascience, Enthusiast Gaming, EXMceuticals - Investing in the future
Innovative technologies and social trends often determine the positive performance of an investment portfolio. The biggest challenge, however, is to recognize the development of a new need in society at the right time and to benefit from it with the right companies. But understanding what a problem is and who has a suitable solution to it is also crucial when making investment decisions on technologies. Nutrition, health and entertainment are industries of great social relevance. Significant innovations with adequate market access can ensure corresponding growth.

Natural proteins for nutrition
Burcon Nutrascience, from Canada, focuses on the growth market of plant-based proteins. The company has established a pioneering role in the field of innovative technologies for the large-scale production of high-quality, cost-effective, plant-based ingredients. The products are used in the global food and beverage industry. Building on its environmentally friendly extraction and purification technologies, the company now holds an extensive portfolio of innovative composition, application and process patents, with over 280 patents and 260 patent applications pending.
High-quality vegetable proteins, which are increasingly in demand by consumers worldwide, can be used in the future in convenience foods from well-known companies such as Nestle.
Growth market natural active ingredients
The young company EXMceuticals plans to position itself as a supplier of high-quality products and active ingredients in Europe. The operational team of the Canadian company is based in Lisbon, Portugal, and is preparing the expansion from there. The production of active ingredients from the cannabis plant for medical applications is the focus of the planning. The market for applications and therapies with natural ingredients is in a growth phase.
In connection with the Corona Crisis, modern society had to learn painfully how big the dependence on China has become. It is quite bizarre that according to current knowledge the origin of COVID-19 is China and all drugs and protective clothing to stop its spread must also be obtained from China. It can be assumed that in the future, politics and economy will take a broader position in the procurement of critical and relevant products and ingredients and EXMceuticals will be able to profit from this development.
On the tracks of the giants
Enthusiast Gaming, as the largest community of its kind with now more than 200 million users per month, has the potential to follow in the footsteps of Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook and Netflix. Access to customers is critical to building a business model that ensures sustainable revenue streams. In addition to more than 900 YouTube channels, the company has seven Esports teams and has already passed the billion-dollar mark in views per month.
For the future of the company, it is crucial to offer products and subscriptions that create added value for customers and at the same time convert customer loyalty into cash flow. Furthermore, Enthusiast Gaming offers an excellent advertising platform for companies that want to address gamers as a target group.
