Aphea.Bio's mission is "Applied Nature for better Agriculture" and develops new and superior agricultural biologicals. We concentrate on products that help reduce fertilizer application (biostimulants) and control fungal diseases (biocontrol agents) sustainably in maize and wheat. Aphea.Bio was founded in 2017 as a spin-off of the VIB and its partner universities UGent and KU Leuven and has raised about USD 10 million in funding. The company can count on a solid scientific team and strong leadership team with many years of experience in science and business. The company is led by Dr. Isabel Vercauteren as CEO (ex-Bayer, ex-DevGen) and Dr. Steven Vandenabeele (ex-CropDesign/BASF) as CSO.
