We empower communities by engineering products that provide the daily needs of societies - local water, energy, and food - from recycled wastewater.
Creating a circular bio-economy free of waste or poverty; fostering the interconnectivity of nature, technology, and humanity both socially and economically.
NuLeaf formed in July 2015 when our CEO brought the idea of bridging bioinspired design and sustainable technology to NASA Ames. Meant to be a 3 month summer project, things changed when over 150 people from all over Silicon Valley applied to be a part of the team. From there, we became an independent DIY biomimetic group.
Over time our focus shifted to resource independence. We became a start up in early 2017 when we realized our approach was unique and had widespread uses. Since then, we were accepted to and graduated from the RebelBio accelerator program in Ireland. We came out with a global network, a sharper business plan, data from our first NuTree system, and indispensable experience.
