Karimi siblings Moji and Tara never thought they’d end up starting a company together but their shared passion for sustainability and realizing their complementary skills in science and business brought them together in an entrepreneurial journey to change the world for the better.



Moji is a carbon-negative entrepreneur, and a technology futurist. His mission is to create a sustainable future where humans have applied technology to balance the rate of climate change. A future where humans live in harmony with nature. As an operator, he has a track record of taking a range of multidisciplinary ideas to market. The fruits of this experience became Cemvita Factory, a company that Moji started with his sister Tara in 2017. In his role, Moji serves a team of passionate scientists and engineers on a mission to reimagine the heavy industries for a net-zero economy. This is done by genetic engineering of microbes that enable carbon-negative solutions across oil and gas, chemical, and mining industries.



Tara has devoted her academic and professional careers to studying biological systems and applying natural principles in the service of creating biologically-inspired technology. A multidisciplinary scientist, she has completed several projects in tissue engineering, genetic engineering, molecular and developmental biology, stem cell research, and regenerative medicine. She is also the author of the Springer book titled “Molecular Mechanisms of Autonomy in Biological Systems by the Relativity of Code, Energy, and Mass.” Dr. Karimi received her Doctor in Veterinary Medicine & PhD in Biochemistry from Shiraz University; her Postdoc in Tissue Engineering from University of South Carolina; and Postdoc in Stem Cell Programming from Tulane University.


Cemvita’s efforts are also supported by an extended network of world-class advisors, contractors, and collaborators, including several universities, research institutes, EPCs, and National Labs.
