Let's start an adventure.

Join a fast growing startup to restore nature by closing the LOOP across the globe with World's First Living Coffin. 

Who are we? 

We are a team of entrepreneurs, scientists, designers and engineers with an incredible drive to improve the natural world and change the way we die. 

Go BIG or go home: We are here to change the world and we will not stop until our mission is accomplished.

Honesty: We are honest with ourselves and with team members. We value feedback, communicate proactively and aim to grow significantly.

Positive footprint: This is the core of our business, we are the next generation that will enrich the natural world. We lead by example.

We are supported in our journey by ecosystems like YES!Delft, Naturalis Biodiversity Institute, TU Delft and and have several experienced advisors and former CEO's who guide us along our moonshot. 

What do we do?   

What if our everyday products are alive? We live in a world where a dead tree has more value than a living tree. Let's change that. We strive for a fundamental new relationship with nature. A new world in which we work together with highly intelligent organisms.

Mushrooms are nature's biggest recycler and the driving force behind the Earth's end-of-life cycle. That's why we invented the world's first living coffin that prevents humans from polluting the earth, but instead allows us to enrich life after death.

In just 7 days, a full-fledged product is grown from mushrooms that absorb CO2 during growth. Not only is the product biodegradable in 45 days, it is also able to recycle our bodies and toxins into important nutrients for new seedlings to bloom. From graveyard to forest.

Were are we going?   

Loop Biotech was founded in 2020 by Bob Hendrikx with the vision to become compost after our death as humans and to nurture new life. Since the first prototypes in the garages and in the YESDelft Incubator, we now stand on our own two feet with a beautiful factory near the TU Delft Campus. Our mission? Giving people worldwide a chance to become a tree and enrich nature.

With the recent investment of €1M at Dragons Den, collaboration with the largest funeral company DELA, first 200 customers, Awards and considerable (international) media exposure, we have already made considerable progress. We are currently super busy scaling up and automating our production capacity from 30 products to 500 products per month. In addition, we are developing a new product portfolio that is not only better for nature, but also for the eye. At the same time, the business side of the company focuses on new partnerships and international expansion, to achieve global impact. We are doing everything we can to make these very ambitious plans a reality, but we cannot do this alone. That is why we are looking for new LOOPERS who want to go GO BIG just like us.
