Petri is a new approach for funding formation-stage startups at the intersection of biology and engineering.
Petri is co-created by entrepreneurs who have built iconic companies like Twist Bioscience, Insitro, Ginkgo Bioworks, Beyond Meat, PathAI, Exact Sciences, and Asimov as well as academics who are driving foundational science in bioengineering (George Church, Pam Silver, Chris Voigt); together we have deep experience developing ideas into successful companies across human health and sustainability.
The company invests in pre-seed and seed capital and work one-on-one with founders for 12+ months. It helps founders build world-class teams, develop intellectual property, find customers, and raise a subsequent round of financing.
