Full Name:  Joseph Tucker

Title:  CEO

Company:  MagicMed Industries Inc.

Years at current company: 1 – since inception

Most successful professional accomplishment before psychedelics:  I founded and took public both Stem Cell Therapeutics (TSX:SSS, now NASDAQ:TRIL) and Epimeron Inc. (now TSX:WLLW, Willow Biosciences).

Company Mission:  To unlock the full potential of psychedelic-derived medicines for the treatment of neurological and psychological indications.

Company’s most successful achievement:  Within one year of the founding of MagicMed (May 2020), we raised $10M, filed 15 patent applications, created the PsybraryTM and PsyAITM, and entered into a definitive agreement to merge into Enveric Biosciences (NASDAQ: ENVB) in an all stock transaction.   

Has the company raised any capital (yes or no): Yes

if so, how much?:  $10M 

Any plans on raising capital in the future?  Yes.  The merger with Enveric Biosciences (NASDAQ:ENVB) enables us to take our best new psychedelic drug candidates through clinical trials ourselves.  This will require further capital raising, which will be facilitated through our NASDAQ listing.  Two investment banks have launched coverage already.

Most important company 5 year goal:  We intend to build and advance through clinical trials a robust pipeline of drug candidates to meet numerous critical unmet medical needs. We expect to have a portfolio of approximately five separate new drug candidates advancing through varying stages of clinical development within 5 years.
