In part one of a special series putting the Startup Spotlight on Riverside, California, we speak to Dr. Paul Zorner about the computational biology startup Sensorygen. Dr. Zorner describes the company's early efforts as we begin to take a closer look at the unique startups originating from California's Inland Empire.
"Knowing that California is the most innovative and creative place on earth," Brian McGowan told the CTC, "I knew that we needed to mobilize and organize our efforts to ensure that our state would get its fair share of this funding. We also knew that we had to do something despite the fact that the state had a $20 billion budget hole."
CTC spoke with new Fellow Brian McGowan about his many leadership roles in state and federal service. As one of the top economic developers in the country, McGowan gave his perspective on how these experiences continue to inspire him today.
