Bay Area Biomimicry Network

Based in one of the most innovative ecosystems on earth, the Bay Area Biomimicry Network is an active consortium of leaders in design, engineering, architecture, life science, communications, business, academia, and the public sector. We are evolving in collaboration with Biomimicry 3.8, The Biomimicry Institute, and a growing web of regional biomimicry networks.

Our Mission

Through collaboration, knowledge sharing, and joint initiatives, the network brings the technology of biology to life in the San Francisco region by studying and applying nature’s adaptive and resilient strategies to solve modern design challenges.

Biomimicry in the Bay Area

The Bay Area’s unique DNA gives rise to an entrepreneurial spirit and culture of innovation. Inclusive of Silicon Valley, the region produces more patents than any other U.S. metropolis and claims more than a third of all venture capital investments in the United States. We benefit from 35 colleges and universities with programs that drive the cutting edge of business, technology, and the life sciences.

It is here that some of the greatest ideas of the 20th and 21st century have incubated—birthing world-changing thought leadership and technologies. Our strongest industry sectors include IT and software, life sciences and biotech, clean tech, professional services, digital media and entertainment, and international business. The region is also pushing the limits of sustainable design in the built environment. In short, the Bay Area ecosystem is a living laboratory for the next generation of bio-inspired innovations.
