Who are we?
Koraï is the embodiment of a new generation of climate positive companies, who switched the business model of a former family coral farm to a nature-based solution builder with one goal: regenerate marine ecosystems of coastal Africa.
"I was born and raised in Madagascar before moving to France at the age of 17 to pursue my studies and then my professional career. I knew I'd be an entrepreneur from the start, having been born into a family of entrepreneurs. It was the contrast between the French and Malagasy economies, and more broadly between the average standard of living in Europe and Africa, that made me realize I had a role to play.
But it was my family history that led me to launch Koraï specifically. When my father died suddenly in 2020, my three brothers and I took over the coral farm whose main activity was breeding for export. In creating Koraï, I wanted to align my desire to regenerate marine biodiversity with the CSR needs of international companies."
