I am the Founder of BioMimicryNYC, a diverse consortium of professionals dedicated to transforming the world through nature-inspired innovation. We are cultivating a city inspired by nature, providing individuals with the tools to think and design with life in mind at all times. We help infuse business systems, products and services with the principles of sustainability found in the natural world. After 3.8 billion years of R&D, these principles serve as inspiration for innovation as well as a constant guide to help all sectors and industries to create value-added solutions, technologies, systems and innovations. What if all businesses, products and services helped to create conditions conducive to life, as opposed to only doing "less bad"? We see nature as mentor, model and measure, not as a "warehouse of goods" as Janine Benyus states.see more
