THE BEGINNINGS

Our story

Our co-founder Diego grew up in northern Argentina, at the tip of the diverse rainforest covering most of South America. After a decade of building technology companies abroad, Diego returned to his roots and traveled to the Amazon rainforest. There he saw how much was cleared to deforestation. There he realized the potential of forests to solve climate change.

Diego moved to California and joined forces with Tomas, a fellow Argentinian and a machine learning engineer, who was thinking deeply about the role technology could play in protecting and restoring Spaceship Earth. The two partnered to create a company to restore nature to solve climate change.
