We help accelerate the World’s quest for sustainable food and materials


We help accelerate the World’s quest for sustainable food and materials. 

Biotech offers an extraordinary potential to replace and improve many foods and materials with attractive sustainable bio-based solutions*. With the advances in technology, insight and data, the discovery of new molecules has only just begun. 

Way too few promising innovations and new molecules have yet been successfully commercialized  and made a true impact to the world.

Industrial biotech innovations often stumble in the delivery step – i.e., turning their discovery in to cost competitive offerings. Many great innovations become niche rather than mainstream products. Industry insiders call the delivery step the “Valley of Death”. 

21st.Bio aims to be the World’s leading scaling hub for innovators in industrial biotech. We commit to helping unlock the enormous potential, by partnering with innovators to bridge the Valley of Death – and to make their innovations truly relevant to the World. In essence, we help people who change the World!

By doing this, we create a unique and unrivaled environment for global top talent to thrive and develop. 

“As much as 60 percent of the physical inputs to the global economy could be produced biologically.”
