Building cool technology is all well and good but it's no good if it doesn't actually help our communities. Meet three powerful entrepreneurs who are solving problems with biology that so many others have overlooked or ignored.

Hear how Marissa Cuevas at MicroTerra is solving challenges for farmers with plant-based ingredients and how Osahon Ojeaga and Mary Ellen Moore at Aja Labs are creating plant-based hair extensions that help our planet and human rights. These IndieBio startups are blazing new trails with new leadership and new vision.
