Brightseed is an AI-driven data company on a mission to illuminate the biological connections between people and plants at the deepest level. Through a lens of nutrition and wellbeing, our goal is to identify the plant bioactive that advance human health. 

Plants create small molecular compounds to communicate with their environment. Bioactives are a special type of plant compound that science knows is paramount in human health. Bioactives show up as antioxidants in blueberries, caffeine in tea, the active ingredient in aspirin, and even in some cancer drugs. However, there was no systematic, scalable way to uncover them — until now.

Brightseed was founded to address the world’s most pressing health challenges. We built Forager to understand nature more deeply than ever before. Our founders share the conviction that the answers to health lie in the natural world — we just needed to know how to look.

We are committed to advancing health by building an ecosystem that delivers bioactive — from agricultural crops to specialized ingredients to pharmaceuticals — to consumers. With every discovery, we are growing Forager, the largest knowledge base of the connections between plant bioactive and human biology, and pioneering the next era of health.
