Showcasing innovations that give back to the planet

Join the Biomimicry Institute and the Ray C. Anderson Foundation at two events this fall to celebrate the entrepreneurs who are creating solutions that help all species on this planet thrive.

Biomimicry pioneer Janine Benyus will present the latest examples of cutting-edge biomimetic technology and teams of entrepreneurs from the Biomimicry Launchpad will display their prototypes for carbon capture, reforestation, temperature regulation, and more!
