I am in the process of starting a company here at MIT. So far, I have a bunch of ideas and I should call myself a "voyeur entrepreneur," observing and learning from the entrepreneurial ecosystem around MIT. My plan is to have fun, learn and find a team with similar interests to help me grow my company.
I have tried to start several companies in the past but non of them became successful. The one I am more proud of is BOPPHY Technologies (http://www.bopphy.com), which I started with an extraordinary team, with offices at the Cambridge Science Park in Cambridge. Bopphy had a patent and won several Business Plan competitions in 2004 and 2005, including the 50K BPlan competition from Cambridge, but we did not succeed in raising enough funding.
Before I came to MIT, I worked for two years as an associate management consultant at McKinsey and Company, working in the high tech, telecom, banking and textile sectors. In the past I also worked at Microsoft Corporate Strategy (Seattle), Intel (NY), NEC Laboratories America (Princeton), STMicroelectronics (San Diego) and Hewlett Packard (Belgium). Before that, I obtained a Master and a PhD in Engineering from Cambridge University, I spent two years as a Fulbright scholar at Columbia University, NY, and later I was a one-year postdoctoral fellow of the Cambridge-MIT Institute.
