Trained in biophysics and biochemistry for my PhD, group leader in biotech, my entrepreneurial nose landed me as the trained Scientist on the founding team at IndieBio. There we proved that small ($100k!) investments could start viable biotech and helped create the startup biotech wave that is global now. The enterprise value of the portfolio passed $2B a while ago – our team deployed $15M in investment.

Co-Founder and Science Officer at the #plantbased #mycoprotein pet-food company Wild Earth. We raised over $15M and released the first #cellAg food product beyond pilot retail scale across the US.

I invest, guest lecture, teach, do consulting for funds and global partners. Mainly I help select and amazing startups realize their full potential. Feel free to reach out to me. I can’t always respond to everyone – I will have the most to say to you, if you are focused on unique biotech and or food, but tell me what you are interested in.

Has worked with 100+ category making startups and is starting a fund.
