Professor in Stanford, California
I'm a professor in Stanford University's Management Science & Engineering group, teaching and doing research on technology entrepreneurship so that the next generation of entrepreneurs can have the greatest chances of success possible.
NovoEd.com launched around my online course, which has taught over 200,000 students. I was also Director of Partner Development at NovoEd and helped them raise their first VC round. I'm a mentor internationally through the U.S. State Department GIST program (Kenya, Jordan, Nepal, Malaysia, etc.). I've spent the past 10 years in and around startups, founding 3 of my own, on the Board of 3 startups currently, worked in a Duke neuroscience lab, started a biotech consulting firm, worked with two venture capital firms (Flagship Ventures and Lux Capital) and mentored startups in the MIT 100K and Clean Energy competitions.
