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 multidisciplinary entrepreneur and engineer fluent in ideating, developing, and commercializing breakthrough technology. With a proven track record of taking ideas to market, both at big companies and startups, his experiences range from developing advanced deepwater drilling methods to novel biotechnologies with applications in the energy and space industries. In his previous endeavor, Moji joined Biota Technology, a 3-person company at the time, to start the Houston office and commercialize DNA Sequencing in the energy industry. In two short years, he grew Biota’s business to millions of dollars in revenue. Moji holds BS and MS degrees in drilling and petroleum engineering, respectively.



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.
