From the organizers:
Samuel Mazin, PhD, CEO of RefleXion Medical, was a Postdoc at Stanford when he attended a radiation oncology lecture and had the insight that led to starting RefleXion. Never imagining his career would head toward business, he took a crash course on business principles, recruited his high school buddy, now an MBA, and raised some “smart money” and an SBIR grant. He’s in the midst of raising a venture round and can tell you about the tough times and good times as a startup CEO. Find out what his biggest surprise was coming from academic roots.
