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 clean tech to NASA Ames. Originally intended to be a 3 month summer project, things changed when people from all over Silicon Valley wanted to be involved. From there, we became an independent DIY biomimetic group.
Over time our focus shifted to connecting biomimicry, the circular economy, and resource independence. We became a start up in early 2017. We’ve graduated from the RebelBio accelerator program where we built an aquaponics proof of concept system. We’re back in Silicon Valley building our first NuTree products and connecting with the lively craft beer community in the area.
