What drew you to the Business Development Fellowship program?

The fellowship program represents a marvelous opportunity for growth, both personal and professional, based on the fruitful cross-fertilization between scientific endeavor and entrepreneurial attitude.

What excites you about growing your entrepreneurial mindset?

As knowledge frees individuals from the chains of ignorance, I believe an ethic entrepreneurial mindset underlies a will to put such knowledge to good use. I want to learn how to do that properly.

What does innovation mean to you?

Evolution without progress can drive collectives toward extinction. To me, innovation is the ultimate practical way to jump on the driver’s seat of evolution and steer the wheels toward progress.
