Why I'm a JPAL
I have add the opportunity to work with ENVISAGENICS and witness the power of putting their unique skills and my experience, disruptive thinking together. I have a passion for innovation that truly impacts consumers and businesses.I strongly believe that each of the startups who joined JLABS have the potential to change the trajectory of health for humanity. Helping them reach their full potential would not only be exhilarating but very rewarding. From my experience with Envisagenics, I also know it is a two way street and I will learn from them as much they learn from me. Finally, I would love to help JLABS and these companies assess their full potential away from traditional silos. For example, RNA splicing has a natural fit to pharma and cancer therapy but could also impact consumer in digestive health for example.
