The World needs new solutions to tackle the mounting sustainability challenges.
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.
However, far too few promising molecule innovations have been successfully commercialized and made a true sustainable impact on the World.
Industrial biotech innovations often stumble in the delivery step – i.e., turning the discovery into cost competitive products produced at large scale. Many great innovations become niche rather than mainstream products mainly due to a too high price of production and difficulty in developing the required production process within a reasonable time frame. Industry insiders call the delivery step the “Valley of Death”.
21st.BIO aims to be the World’s leading scaling hub for innovators of new molecules in industrial biotech. We build and prove your manufacturing technology together with you.
We commit to helping unlock the enormous potential, by helping innovators 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 unrivalled environment for global top talent to thrive and develop.
