Lewes, DE – Out of nearly 100 contenders, Pathogend has distinguished itself as one of Philly’s most innovative and outstanding startup companies of 2018. The company, which endeavors to “provide healthier, safer spaces” in environments where pathogens are prominent, brought home the award in the Second Act Start-ups category of the competition. The category spotlights founders who have left the corporate world and are now pursuing a “second-act” as entrepreneurs. This is the third year The Philadelphia Inquirer has hosted the contest which strives to spotlight some of the region’s most remarkable entrepreneurs.
Founded by Rich Mullen in Landenberg, PA, and John Eklund of Lewes, DE, Pathogend of Delaware was forged when Mr. Mullen, after crossing paths with the CEO of the parent company, Frances Grinstead, determined this new proprietary technology, originally targeted and used in the healthcare industry, could benefit thousands in other markets to prevent and solve the most difficult infection issues threatening people today.
“It’s so gratifying to offer such a safe and effective solution to customers who have not had such an affordable alternative in the past. Why we are in business is as important as what we do,” says Rich of his company.
Pathogend of Delaware prides itself on being a market leader in whole-space disinfection and biodecontamination. The company services numerous facilities such as offices, schools, long term care facilities, daycares, homes, and boats, to eradicate the most difficult pathogens including C. diff., MRSA, Flu, Mold, Staph, E. coli, Norovirus and TB. Their proprietary hydrogen peroxide fogging technology, called CURIS™, is setting the industry standard with hospital grade disinfection. It eliminates pathogens where spraying and wiping can’t reach.
