Colossal: De-extinction of the Woolly Mammoth

Pitch Please Podcast Episode #037

Colossal is best known recently for the de-extinction of the Woolly Mammoth. Extinction is a colossal problem facing the world and Colossal is the company that’s going to fix it.

On this episode, we are joined by the Founder and CEO of Colossal, Ben Lamm, and Draper Associates Investor, Matt Harris.

Combining the science of genetics with the business of discovery, Colossal’s endeavor is to jumpstart nature’s ancestral heartbeat. To see the Woolly Mammoth thunder upon tundra once again. To advance the economies of biology and healing through genetics. To make humanity more human. And to reawaken the lost wilds of Earth. So we, and our planet, can breathe easier. Learn more at
