Marianne Wu, Ph.D.
Impact starts with gritty innovators tackling a meaningful problem. It is developed and realized with the support of people who provide expertise, capital and introductions to other people that can help. I am delighted to work with the Bakar Ecosystem and BEVC which provides all the support for great innovators to nurture and transform their ideas from concept to commercialization.
