Companies I work or worked for:
If you are an entrepreneur, why?

I want to change the world.

What's most frustrating and rewarding about entrepreneurship/innovation?

Most frustrating yet rewarding is leaving the academic environment with the constant battle of needing to prove that scientific innovation has worth and marketability in order for research and business to synchronize.

What's the No. 1 mistake entrepreneurs make?

The No. 1 mistake made by entrepreneurs is failing to prioritize understanding of cash flow and overhead expenses necessary to not only start a business, but maintain and grow at a sustainable rate moving ahead.

What are the top three lessons you've learned as an entrepreneur?

The top three lessons I have learned as an entrepreneur are: 1) A single person cannot accomplish everything alone. Building a supportive team of people who can thrive together towards a single goal is priceless. 2) Coming from a scientific academic background I have learned the importance of teaching oneself a better understanding of what it means to run a business. 3) I have learned to be humble in viewing the bigger picture of progress. In many cases what appears to be taking a step back can be necessary in order to re-prioritize for future success.
