humble bee is an early stage research company backed by Sparkbox, Go Global Day One, and NZVIF. We are researching how nature creates materials with industrial properties such as resistance to water, flame, high temperatures, and chemicals. 

With the help of the School of Biological Sciences at Victoria University and chemists at the Ferrier Institute we are assessing specific gaps in our scientific understanding and analysing certain species with the hope of discovering a material that is more sustainable than traditional, petrochemical based plastics.
