Checkerspot is a high performance materials company that designs materials at a molecular level.
We exist because the world needs new materials designed to perform better but are also less toxic and safer for the environment, and can be biomanufactured at scale.
Our Mission is to use the power of biotechnology to expand the palette of molecular building blocks for high performance and sustainable materials. Our Vision is to be the most impactful 21st century materials company by delivering unique, new technologies & materials into the hands of fabricators and designers, the makers that conceive the next generation of high performance products. We do this by optimizing natural microbes to biomanufacture unique structural oils discovered in nature, but not previously accessible commercially.
