Founded in June 2016 as a public benefit corporation, Checkerspot’s
holistic vision is to uncover the intrinsic connections and build stronger links
between the disciplines of biology, chemistry, material science, design and fabrication.
Innovation is fueled by human spirit and creativity, and brought to fruition through collaboration and community. We believe developing better performing products starts with an emphatic connection with the customer and is achieved by a relentless commitment to solve real world challenges.
