Designing psychedelic mindstates, with Mindstate Design Labs
Business Trip, a podcast about psychedelic entrepreneurship
Welcome back to Business Trip, a podcast about psychedelic entrepreneurship! 🍄
In Episode 15, we chat with Dillan Dinardo and Tom Ray, the co-founders of Mindstate Design Labs. Mindstate has a unique framework to design psychedelic compounds using what they call the “primer probe method.” This method involves combining a known psychedelic with a non-psychedelic compound. Mindstate just raised an $11.5M seed round.
In this episode, we discuss:
Tom and Dillan’s experience in YCombinator and raising an $11.5M seed round
Tom’s friendship with the late psychedelic chemist Alexander Shulgin
Mindstate’s lead programs
The role of mystical states in the healing process
