I am an entrepreneur with more than 15 years of leadership experience in government, project management, community and business development. I am responsible for the vision and strategic direction of Terramera, which develops high-performance, plant-based alternatives to synthetic chemical pesticides and fertilizers, including products for agriculture, professional and consumer applications.
A recurring thread runs through both my life story and Terramera’s vision: a rejection of convention and a desire to redefine what’s possible. Karn is motivated by genuine interest in solving problems and pushing humanity forward. I am a frequent speaker on issues of sustainability, making clean food affordable, feeding the world and building innovative organizations, including at TEDx and Singularity University.

“People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.”
