Christopher Somogyi
Name Christopher Somogyi
Organisation  Blue Nalu
Job title Executive Chairman

Sector expertise:

My career focus has been on commercialising the fruits of research, be it corporate (e.g. American Hospital Corporation), academic (e.g. Stanford, Princeton, and University of Washington), or private research institutions (e.g. SRI International). As a venture capitalist, board leader, inventor, entrepreneur, licensing executive and national government innovation programme director, I have seen all the core pillars of innovation commercialisation.

Driving innovation from the lab to market requires cross-cultural and interdisciplinary efforts. It also requires persistence, optimism, vision and leadership. As a founder and leader of numerous technology startups in areas from photonics to tissue engineering to medical devices to food science, I've been fortunate to enjoy the company of great scientists, engineers, managers and investors.

I can't bear to see a valuable and important technology languish on the shelf !
