    Michael Biddle, PhD

    Managing Director, Ekok Innovations

    Dr. Mike Biddle is the managing director of Evok Innovations, an entrepreneur-led CleanTech venture fund that aims to increase the scale, diversity and quality of early-stage innovations focused on clean energy, reducing the time it takes to commercialize technologies. Evok accomplishes this by connecting entrepreneurs with flexible capital, mentors and industry partners. 

    Before Evok, Mike founded MBA Polymers—literally from his garage. He grew MBA to the world’s leading multi-national company recovering plastics from end-of-life durable goods, such as computers, electronics, appliances, automobiles and now household waste. When the company was sold, it had a processing capacity of over 300 million lbs/yr in Europe and China.  Some of the largest manufacturers in the world have used MBA’s plastics to replace virgin plastics in their new products.   

    Mike worked for several large companies, namely General Electric, Cummins Engine Company and Dow Chemical, before striking out on his own in 1992.  Mike received a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Louisville and a Ph.D. in Polymer Science and Engineering from Case Western Reserve University, both with high honors.  He was also a Sloan Fellow at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business, graduating with an MS in Management Science.

    Mike, who is often called the “Garbage Man” for his groundbreaking work in extracting valuable resources from highly complex waste streams around the world, has won numerous international awards.  In fact, he just picked up both the 2017 SME Circulars Award and the Davos Prize at this years’ World Economic Forum for the company he founded
