EQO, an Austin Technology Incubator startup, creates molecular solutions to fight aquatic invasive species.
“Austin is a community that really fosters innovation and we’re so proud to be a part of it,” said Stefan Schuster, founding team member of EQO. EQO, founded in 2016, has four employees and it hasn’t raised any capital yet, Schuster said.
EQO has developed an eradication technology to kill invasive aquatic species without harming the environment or other species, Schuster said. The company is piloting a trial of the technology, he said.
The $100,000 will allow the company to generate momentum and get its product out into the field, he said.
