Silvano Coletti (an artistic interpretation)

I'm lecturer of "Global Entrepreneurship" and faculty member of Franklin University Switzerland. Educated at School of Engineering (Politecnico di Milano) and Harvard Business School. Former fellow at Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL), joining the Industrial Ecology & Life Cycle Systems Group (Prof. Olivier Jolliet) and Université Libre de Bruxelles where I joined Ilya Prigogine team. I learned about OpenWetWare from, and I've joined because of my interest in collaborating with innovators helping to realize the full potential of discoveries by safeguarding intellectual property, securing funding, and facilitating the successful transfer of inventions to the commercial sphere. In 2002 I founded with the intention to advise global corporations and scientists but also to have an investment vehicle for ventures I decide to join or to start-up. Main area of interest: Life Sciences and Biotechnologies. Free-lance writer on new technologies and entrepreneurship.
