Chris Yoo, Ph.D.
What got me started in all this:
When it comes to startups, the most difficult thing for me to do is to be a spectator. I realized throughout my career that I had a knack for translating "mission statements" into actionable strategies. I am happiest when I can embrace the uncertainty of new ventures and create value at the earliest stages of growth. As other entrepreneurs embark on their journeys, I get the most satisfaction knowing that their paths to success started with Yoo and Co. Accelerators.
What gets me interested:
Anything "DIY"- I am constantly surprised and delighted by the ingenuity of individuals solving their own particular problem, and spreading that knowledge to others.
Unorthodox thinking- Ridicule is just the beginning. Most entrepreneurs start this way.
Scientific advancement- Yes, I still get Science magazine and do read articles (sometimes).
What I enjoy when I'm not focused on Yoo & Co. Accelerators:
Listening to audiobooks at maximum speed- the faster, the better, in my opinion.
Understanding recently domesticated canines- check out Dmitry Belyayev's experiment with silver foxes.
Traveling with family- nothing better than suffering long trips, together.
