Gregor Perich, Co-founder Terensis

Gregor did his PhD at ETHZ in agricultural sciences focusing on satellite-based estimation of crop yield and crop nutrition. During his PhD studies, he realized that his research know-how could have a tangible real-world impact on many stakeholders in the agrifood system. That’s why he’s founded Terensis in early 2024 together with his colleague, Lukas. Terensis develops a digital twin of agriculture to track field crops in real-time from sowing to harvest. With this technology, Terensis is on a mission to shape a data-based agrifood system to enable a more resource-efficient agriculture of tomorrow, ultimately feeding more people with less resources.

Kevin Yar, Co-Founder TrueYouOmics

Kevin, with roots in Biochemistry and Computational Life Sciences, honed his skills in crafting Deep Learning pipelines for Enzyme engineering and diving into hackathons during his Masters. Alongside Andrés at Biognosys, they focused on the human proteome as Data Scientists, uncovering the consumer potential of this tech. By late 2023, they teamed up with Dominic, driven to bring multi-omics directly to consumers in an accessible, accurate and affordable way, aiming to empower individuals and prevent diseases early on.

In 2023, he co-founded Borobotics, a spin-off from Zurich University of Applied Sciences developing an innovate bore robot designed for geothermal drilling in urban areas.
