Our vision

Our vision is that humans will be able to harness the power of microbes offworld to serve Earth, carry out deep space missions, and settle other planets.

Our mission

To enable biomanufacturing in low Earth orbit and other offworld locations by evolving strains of microbes that thrive in microgravity.

Our history

Offworld Biotech was founded in 2022 by co-founders who met through Mars University and New Space Economy conventions. The co-founders are Dr. James Secrest, Margarita Belali, Harley Jackson, Benjamin Lyons, Andrew Lord, Ian McCann, and Terry Trevino. Every co-founder has the unique combination of being passionate about both synthetic biology and human space settlement. We started the company because we believe microbes are a crucial component to making human life multi-planetary.
