Johann Bauerfeind has a master’s degree in life science engineering from HTW Berlin – University of Applied Sciences. He is the founder of Solaga, a start-up in the centre of Berlin that cultivates algae for air purification.

“I heard the wake-up call in the old Wedding City Baths, where Berlin’s DIY-biotech community had set up an improvised bio lab in a women’s changing area. Their democratisation of science showed me that bioscience doesn’t necessarily have to be bound to institutional or industrial laboratories.”
