Who is Tigrilla Gardenia?

Tigrilla Gardenia, Interspecies Researcher, Biomimic, Naturepreneur

My journey has led me from a multi-ethnic upbringing to the high-tech industry, performing arts, spiritual studies, and the eco-everything world of social innovation and architectural design. Along the way I learned to look to the many amazing beings in nature for answers.

But what do I do? In one sentence, I am Communications and Business Development Consultant for creative entrepreneurs and naturepreneurs (nature-inspired business leaders) looking to turn ideas into a successful Dream project. Some would call me a Dream Developer.

I am a citizen of Damanhur in Italy—one of the largest spiritual ecocommunities in the world—and the Communications Manager for Bioversum—a non-profit dedicated to nature-inspired solutions, such as Biomimicry.

The plant world is my passion. Plants show me new ways to do business inspired by nature’s 3.8 billion years of ingenuity in problem solving. Have you ever noticed how nature is made up of collaborations between organisms with seemingly different goals? And yet, each one gets what it needs to not only survive, but thrive! I study these successful partnerships, then replicate those strategies in my own work.

You could say my super power is to help you see the connections that bring your Dream Projects into Reality and create meaningful, successful work that feels like play.
