I started in R&D as a Mechanical Engineer after schooling at University of Pennsylvania & Wharton. With 10 years of growth working in Fortune 500 companies, I started consulting which has evolved into the Open Innovators practice. For the past 15 years, we have worked with companies of all sizes (Pfizer, Eaton, Genentech, Cadbury, Henkel, and supporting other consultants) to help in leading tech innovation. We specialize in working with engineering, technology & life sciences companies. Each of our lead consultants has a deep background in both a technical & business discipline. We also manage an internal product development portfolio of socially conscious projects funded by our own venture pool and the support of the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation.
