Who are we?

The Bx Group is a Climate-Tech business working to transform agriculture into an industry that helps to reverse climate change and benefit nature. We do this by building tools to help growers manage their operations efficiently and sustainably whilst continuously improving the health of their farm’s ecosystem. We also provide growers with new revenue opportunities through our blockchain-backed ecosystem services marketplace. Within the Bx Group we have access to the UK’s most forward-thinking top fruit growers, giving us a unique opportunity to incubate our products on working farms. Our aim is to fundamentally disrupt the food industry, delivering better produce and information to consumers, and better incentives for growers to care for the natural environment.

Within Bx we believe that exceptional performance is achieved by nurturing a culture underpinned by psychological safety, kindness, open communication and the right to take measured risks and learn from failures. Our approach to leadership is to enable our team to be highly autonomous with a decentralised approach to decision making, centred around well-bounded areas of ownership, with durable and realistic goals for teams and individuals.
