Key Accomplishments

Entrepreneur, founded and built a biotech startup for a number of years including team building product from early science, FDA interaction, grant fundraising, etc. Looking for other options as the funding environment is pretty awful in the biotech sector for early stage, innovative companies. Also serve on the board of an LED lighting company. Founded the cleantech open, a successful non-profit and startup accelerator in green tech. McKinsey alum and independent strategy consultant. Engineering degrees from MIT and Stanford

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

pretty sure I could get funding quickly for the right idea and team. otherwise, leadership, network, strategy, problem solving and product background. have a number of ideas which are 1/4 baked.
