We worked together  •  Founder, ENovate Biolife LLC, USA and Founder, Vedic Lifesciences.
I have known Mark Miller for longer than 10 yrs. We have had JVs together, we have been service providers to his companies. We continue to w ... ork with him on several product development projects. Mark has a distinct advantage of having worked in different environments performing diverse functions - starting from scientist up to founder level of startups and CSO at large corps. Mark can smoothly work with cross-cultural/multi-national teams well. Within the supplement industry I/we have not come across a potential advisor who's better tuned into the science as well as the business aspects in the supplement and natural health product industry. I don't believe in giving recos on the internet, but I just could not resist this one! Also Mark is a good human being and fun guy to work with.
