Mr. Biotech Scientist
I am a Product Development Scientist in a medical device start-up that recently filed for an IPO. I was the key contributor to bringing three regulatory approved/filed products into the market from zero company products. I’m also a partner/VP of education in a biotech mutual fund that specializes in investments in small/mid-cap biotech companies.

Big Life Wins:
Spearheading the growth of the current start-up by bringing three products into the market from zero. While the youngest member in the group with no PhD background, I was leading and managing development projects that ultimately brought the products to market. I was promoted to a Scientist from a Research Associate.
Post MBA Goal:
I want to utilize my background in biotech investments and product development to join VCs that specialize in biotech. Coming from a start-up, I recognize the challenges that small companies face in a heavily regulated market. I would like to be part of an ecosystem that boosts these companies’ growth potential and overcome their challenges.
