TERO ISOKAUPPILA is the founder and CEO of Four Sigmatic. We chat about the history of the business, the challenges of building a mushroom company, advice for other mushroom lovers wanting to turn their passion into something that also pays their bills, mycoremediation, psilocybin, the functional mushroom industry as a whole, and so Mush More.
Tero’s roots (or mycelium, if you will) are in Finland, where he grew up growing and foraging natural foods on his 13th generation family’s farm. He later earned a degree in Chemistry, Business, and a Certificate in Plant-Based Nutrition at Cornell University. In 2012, Tero founded Four Sigmatic with the dream of bringing a little Everyday Magic to the lives of all. A best selling author and expert in all things related to nutrition, health, and wellness.
