Our story began nearly a decade ago, when the research efforts of Karsten Temme, Ph.D., and Alvin Tamsir, Ph.D., converged. With Karsten’s bioengineering background and Alvin’s molecular biology and computer programming experience, we were inspired to develop solutions that would positively impact our world by channeling our efforts on the agricultural landscape. Initially focusing on nitrogen fixation, the result of this unique collaboration was Pivot Bio, a biotech startup leveraging a deep understanding of microbial behavior to deliver innovative nutrient solutions to farmers.
Fueled by an innovative drive and a deep understanding of the microbiome, Pivot Bio is pioneering game-changing advances in crop nutrition. Our proprietary ON Technology™ harnesses the power of naturally occurring microbes to give crops increased access to key nutrients. It’s a smart, sustainable way for farmers to improve yield as they work to help feed the world’s growing population.
