In 2013, Larry Feinberg and Chris Marx founded KnipBio with one goal in mind: sustainability. 

It’s an area Feinberg has been personally invested in for the last 15 years. A microbiologist by training, Feinberg previously worked for Waltham-based Mascoma, a corporation that produces cellulosic biofuel. Coming up with alternative fuel sources via fermentation was the kind of major problem Feinberg enjoyed solving. He wanted to apply that knowledge—and enthusiasm—elsewhere. -MORE-
