Chris Bunka, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) of Lexaria Bioscience (NASDAQ: LEXX), was recently featured on episode 234 of the EDGE Podcast. Hosted by Brandon C. White, an Angel Investor and Entrepreneur, Mr. Bunka shared insights into his professional journey while also sharing what the company is committed to achieving going forward.
Mr. Bunka lauded the company’s patented DehydraTECH(TM) technology, citing how integral it is to improve the delivery of active pharmaceutical ingredients and other fat-soluble molecules. So far, this technology has proven promising for the potential treatment of hypertension and heart disease, and is already being sublicensed for the delivery of CBD.
“Our technology is all about enabling a much higher fraction and a much smoother delivery of the beneficial substances in the foods you eat and in the drugs you take and, quite frankly, getting them into your bloodstream,” he noted (https://cnw.fm/nQd2z).
He also walked the audience through his career growth that spans over four decades, having started his first business at the age of 17. Over the years, he notes, he has learned how to run a business, rely on other people, and manage employees, skills that have translated to the success of Lexaria thus far.
When asked about his most significant career lessons, Mr. Bunka reckoned that while he has learned a lot, the central aspect is the significance of understanding the competitive environment. He further advised small companies and entrepreneurs first to understand their competitive environment and then understand the products and services they offer to customers.
“A lot of small companies don’t do a good job of understanding their competitive environment,” he noted. “A lot of them say, ‘I’m the best, I’m the fastest.’…I could be on my laptop and have somebody pitching me on an idea, and I see 3,700 companies just like his. It makes it really hard, so understanding your competitive environment is really, really important, as well as understanding your products and services,” he added.
The interview with Mr. Bunka offered a glimpse into the inner workings of Lexaria, the vision that he has for the company, and the goals that it is working towards. In addition, he talked about the company’s ongoing efforts to make the most out of its innovative delivery platform, along with professional philosophies that have guided his career so far.
