Worldbiotics Global Startup Success Story, social entrepreneur Kseniya Kotelnikova, Russia

 Marfa's Healthbiotics startup produces a natural agent that cleans environment, increases yield of agriproduce, and heals diseases.

   

   

 

Marfa, a young biologist and healthcare specialist, wanted to make people healthier. The best way to achieve this is to get people closer to the Mother Nature.

The famous ancient doctor Hyppocratus taught 'Doctors treat diseases, but it is Nature who cures them".

Marfa wanted to do something that would help people to live in a cleaner, more natural environment and eat healthy natural food.

Marfa started searching for the best solutions and found scientists who invented Healthbiotics, all-natural and highly effective victorious agent that can clean environment, improve and increase yield of agriproduce, and prevent and heal diseases naturally.

Yet, the scientists were not entrepreneurial enough to commercialise their invention and make it applied globally.

Marfa established the 'Healthbiotics' startup with the scientists and obtained a small startup loan.

③ A hospital where the mortality rate among the patients was too high.

Facing a life-of-death dilemma, these three organisations agreed to replace chemicals by heatlhbiotics and achieved amazing positive results within 9 months.

These three success stories helped 'Healthbiotics' to start acquiring new customers.
