Meet the Team
Scott Collins, PhD
Board of Directors President
I am passionate about eliminating the world’s problems through new and existing technologies alike. Most recently, I have applied this to human health. I can visualize the various pathways from technology creation to sustainable market, and guide companies more expeditiously towards success. I hate seeing companies flounder and technologies die on the vine. I like bringing clarity to ambiguity.
I am an experienced startup executive with cross-industry expertise spanning corporate formation through sale. I bring a multi-perspective approach to success, drawing from knowledge in entrepreneurship, biotechnology, tissue and organ engineering, biofabrication, communications, and software development. I am a creative out-of-the-box thinker who can combine existing technologies and novel innovations to sustainably solve problems and improve processes.
