Biomimicry Launchpad

The Launchpad Program is an accelerator program that supports early-stage entrepreneurs working to bring biomimicry innovations to market. Previously, this opportunity was invite-only, but you can now apply directly to join this program. 

We are looking for potential candidates/teams for this upcoming cohort. Would you be willing to share this opportunity with your professional networks? Below is some additional information about our biomimicry entrepreneurship program. 

We’re looking for a new kind of entrepreneur - one whose early-stage bio-inspired idea helps create a more resilient future, who is motivated to contribute to the greater social and environmental good, and who is energized to join a cohort of fellow biomimics with big ideas and the determination to see them through. 

The Launchpad offers:

  • In-person Biomimicry and Business bootcamp
  • Hands-on entrepreneurship training (webinars and guest speakers)
  • Mentoring and access to subject matter experts
  • Pro bono legal advice
  • Access to free design software
  • Opportunity to compete for the Ray C. Anderson Foundation’s $100,000 Ray of Hope Prize® and additional prizes.
