Cambridge, MA - Inc., a Flagship Pioneering company focused on unlocking the potential of the planet's interdependent natural systems to solve pressing agricultural, sustainability, and environmental challenges, today announced the appointment of Hugh Grant to its Board of Directors.

Grant brings nearly 40 years of agricultural and corporate leadership, including as Chairman, President, and Chief Executive Officer of the former Monsanto Company, a global provider of technology-based solutions and agricultural products. During his 15 years at the helm, Monsanto tripled sales to $14 billion and its share price rose 12 times. In 2018, Grant led the $60 billion sale of Monsanto to Bayer AG.

"We are very pleased to welcome Hugh to our Board at a time where we are actively developing and deploying Invaio's integrated solutions to help growers and food and agricultural stakeholders produce more nutritious food in a sustainable manner," said Robert Berendes, Chairman of the Board, Invaio Sciences, Inc. "Hugh's deep insights and experience will be of tremendous value to scale our company for delivering global impact."

"I'm impressed with the quality of the people and the strength of the science. It's a winning combination in my experience," said Grant.

Grant continued, "Invaio has developed a suite of groundbreaking biological solutions and targeted delivery systems to address critical crop health issues that have plagued the agricultural industry for years. The company's potential for impact, not only for farmers, but across the entire agricultural industry is enormous, and I look forward to working with the leadership team and Board of Directors to drive Invaio to commercial success."
