CiBO Technologies Company Overview

Our Story

CiBO Technologies, a Flagship Pioneering Company, was founded in 2015 by Noubar Afeyan, Founder and CEO of Flagship Pioneering, Ignacio Martinez, General Partner at Flagship Pioneering and Professor Bruno Basso, an internationally recognized agricultural systems scientist and professor in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences at Michigan State University.  Powered by a unique combination of system science and entrepreneurial vision, CiBO was created to improve the impact of agriculture at a global level, to address the world’s food security concerns, and to make our planet a healthier place to live.

Simulating Agricultural Ecosystems

We combine data, science and technology to develop virtual agricultural ecosystems that unlock previously unattainable outcomes for our customers.

Model, Simulate and Optimize Any Crop. Any Location. Any Scenario.

We’re working to solve the world’s most important agricultural challenges—from food security to resilience — in order to create a better state of being for all people and our planet.

What We Do

Our science-based software platform models and simulates complex agricultural ecosystems around the world, providing new opportunities to optimize how we grow and use crops. CiBO helps our customers increase throughput, optimize production, enhance capital efficiency, reduce waste and improve sustainability by doing things like:

  • Real-time tracking of crop requirements
  • Scientific modeling of crop reactions to pests and diseases
  • Evaluating of new product target markets
  • Sourcing of high-quality raw materials
  • Carrying out virtual field trials
  • Identifying and managing supply chain risks

We were recently featured on Forbes: The 25 Most Innovative AgTech Startups in 2018.
