"I joined Indigo because I believe strongly in the mission to help farmers feed the world’s growing population sustainably—because we work with nature, on nature’s own premise. My professional passion, since my university days, has been to enable the production of microbes and microbial products as natural and sustainable alternatives to industrial-age products that deplete resources and pollute our environment. At Indigo, I get to pursue my passion as we strive to realize our mission. Moreover, I get to do this with a great team of people."
