$1M for climate biotech

Check out public problem statements for over 60 proposals from Homeworld’s first Garden Grants program focused on protein engineering.


Bioremediation, carbon capture, plastic degradation, and more.


The problem statements are public, the solution statements are confidential. This novel approach is an experiment to see the field-building impact of researchers identifying and sharing the most important problems to work on.Our vision is that openness facilitates new collaborations and increases philanthropic funding for climate biotech.

More about our mission

Climate biotech is a rapidly-developing field devoted to realizing the full potential of biology toward a healthy climate, from enzymes that convert raw CO2 into commodities to microbes that extract metals for the energy transition. The infrastructure of this growing field must grow with the drive of the practitioners and the scale of the applications.

Homeworld Collective is dedicated to nurturing the growth of climate biotech by fostering community, building knowledge, and directly supporting early stage research. Together we can work toward a healthy biosphere and thriving human society.

Our Focus:

Community building
A community is a network of meaningful connections and joint interests. Homeworld Collective fosters the growth of the emerging climate biotech community by supporting relationship development, sharing common challenges, and co-creating knowledge.
Thought leadership
Where is the go-to knowledge for biotechnologists trying to make planetary-scale impact? We skip the paywalls and siloed career tracks to produce community knowledge that accelerates all of us in our journeys to build climate-positive technologies.
Catalyzing action
Let’s get good ideas into motion as quickly as possible, and learn together while we’re at it. We enable technology development and translatable research in climate biotech, by seeding high-impact projects and hosting Garden Grants, a novel grantmaking pipeline that generates community knowledge while refining actionable projects and streamlining contribution by additional funders.
