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 a Nature-Inspired Business Mentor for conscious entrepreneurs and naturepreneurs (nature-inspired business leaders) looking to turn ideas into a successful Dream project

I am a citizen of Damanhur in Italy—one of the largest spiritual ecocommunities in the world—and Biomimicry facilitator.

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 superpower is helping you see the connections that brings into reality a life and business in harmony with nature and your true self. I advocate connection to nature as the basis for long-term health, wealth, and happiness.
