Title: Living the Dream: My Career as a (Female) Biotech Entrepreneur
Abstract: I lived every high-tech entrepreneurs dream: I built my own biotech company and sold a biomedical patent. But to get there, I had to survive the nightmare: I was bankrupt and sued by one of my business partners. Yet I persisted, settled the lawsuit, and lead the company to profitability without accepting any venture capital money. In 2016, I bought out my other business partners to become sole owner and President. Today, ICT is a profitable niche biotech company selling products and services to biomedical researchers all over the world. Our products have been cited in over 2,000 scientific publications. I’m living the dream as a successful scientist. If I can do it, you can do it too!
