BioPop was co-founded by Andy Bass in 2013 to develop groundbreaking consumer products using synthetic biology. BioPop’s market spanned toys, live plants, home décor and pets. At BioPop's inception, RJ Kirk, a renowned biotech investor and CEO of Intrexon, invested in the company to help develop new bio-based products for the consumer market. In 2017, BioPop was fully acquired by Intrexon Corporation.
