Dr. John Langmore, Ph.D, co-founder and chief scientific officer at Rubicon Genomics knows a lot more about business now than he used to. On this edition of StartupNation Radio, Jeff Sloan and Norm Pappas are joined by Rich Sloan, and the three conduct a very compelling and inspirational interview with Dr. Langmore on the science of entrepreneurship.
A brilliant scientist with the gift of bringing an idea to life, he knew very little about the business world. Dr. Langmore answers questions about how someone with a scientific background moves into the world of entrepreneurship, and what you need to do to make the same transition. There are many avenues available to the budding entrepreneur and one such resource also joined the conversation during the second half of the show.
