    SDEE Presents: Founder Tales

    Speaker Information Adam Tibbs: Chief Executive Officer at Upswing Health Adam is a 26-year veteran of tech startups -- having co-founded and run companies that have seen successful exits (DailyCandy, Terrestrial Light, Privista, NNY) as well as experienced failures (Soundlinks, Marshall Projects, FOBConnect) and a few ongoing business (Project Frog, Parasail, Upswing Health).  Adam is passionate about building high-performing teams and even higher-performing companies, turning ideas into reality, and reality into value.     Helge Zeiler: Founder and President, Primordial Genetics Inc. Helge is a biotechnology professional and entrepreneur with >20 years of industry experience in technology development, R&D project leadership and IP development/management in early-stage biotechnology companies. He has a passion for early-stage genetic technologies, and has helped launch the operations of multiple biotechnology startups. Helge founded Primordial Genetics in 2011 with the goal of developing a novel whole-genome genetic technology for improving the performance of microbes and enzymes. The company launched its laboratory operations in 2013 and since then has steadily developed a platform of genetic technologies and products. Although he had participated in early-stage startups prior to Primordial, this was his first time founding a company. Entrepreneurship can be a difficult and uncertain road, but is also highly rewarding and the only option for those who prefer to forge their own paths rather than following in the footsteps of others. While there is a strong individualist element – you create and shape your own dreams – much of it is about building an effective team, incentivizing and empowering others and making room for key team members to grow and adopt a challenge as their own. We are fortunate to live in a culture and economy in which entrepreneurism is not just possible but encouraged, supported and celebrated when it succeeds.   Molly He: CEO at Element Biosciences Molly co-founded Element Biosciences and has served as Chief Executive Officer since its inception. She has more than 20 years of experience in technology innovation and management in biotechnology and healthcare industries, and has sponsored initiatives encompassing research and development, operations, and life cycle management.   Molly was previously a Venture Partner at Foresite Capital, investing in some of the most exciting and innovative companies in healthcare. Before then, she was Senior Director of Scientific Research at Illumina, responsible for Illumina’s global protein reagent innovation and improvements, and for leading global scientific and technical teams. She and her team have won twice the Innovation Award, the highest award for innovations with significant revenue impact at Illumina.    Prior to Illumina, Molly was the Head of Protein Sciences at Pacific Biosciences, where she was responsible for protein reagent development for their single-molecule real-time sequencing chemistry. She also has years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry, focusing on the structure-based design of antibody and small molecule drugs targeting cancer and immune diseases. Molly holds a PhD from the University of California, Los Angeles in protein biophysics. She is passionate about science and technology education, and has been a proud coach for the California State Science Olympiad competition since 2013.   Join Zoom Meetinghttps://zoom.us/j/6580788201 Meeting ID: 658 078 8201One tap mobile+16699006833,,6580788201# US (San Jose)+13462487799,,6580788201# US (Houston) Dial by your location+1 669 900 6833 US (San Jose)+1 346 248 7799 US (Houston)+1 253 215 8782 US (Tacoma)+1 301 715 8592 US (Germantown)+1 312 626 6799 US (Chicago)+1 929 436 2866 US (New York)Meeting ID: 658 078 8201Find your local number: https://zoom.us/u/ailuhuFG
