About Us

Dream Bigger, Achieve More

"We're on a mission to ensure that everyone, everywhere has the chance to enjoy a meaningful relationship with STEM"

Nanogirl Labs was created by founders Joe Davis and Dr Michelle Dickinson MNZM.  A social enterprise, Nanogirl Labs exists to inspire, educate and empower through STEM.

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, our team works around the world to design, create and deliver products and experiences that are both commercially successful and deeply impactful.

Whether with our own brands - Nanogirl, and The Kitchen Science Cookbook - or through collaborations with partners, every piece of work we undertake includes a clear social impact strategy, alongside the core commercial proposition.  ​

We welcome bold ideas and deep thought.  If you have a project or concept you would like to discuss, we would love to hear from you.
