Anh Hoang
They're my school  •  Co-Founder, Sofregen Medical. Previously ECOR Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Harvard Medical School. Vanderbilt grad.
Hunter has traits of a successful entrepreneur: a mix of smarts, drive and resourcefulness. I had the privilege of working with Hunter to st ... rategize Sofregen's product pipeline, as part of a field course at HBS. Hunter took the lead for one product indication. He identified key opinion leaders, interviewed physicians to better understand the market need, and perform analysis of the targeted market to assess the business opportunity.

Christopher Newton
They're my friends  •  Lead Launch Engineer, Launch Site Design, SpaceX and Launch Engineer, SpaceX. Florida State grad. Florida State grad.
Hunter would be a great entrepreneur because of his drive to create follow projects through. This, paired with his years of experiences in ... the tech industry, with a real understanding of what it actually takes to get a project into the prototype phase, and then from prototype to production, gives him a leg-up on others who have dreams, but no realization of what goes in to making those dreams come to fruition.
