A Journey In Chemistry: From Corporate R&D to Startup Founder

Abstract: Cora Leibig, PhD, earned degrees in Chemical Engineering in 1993 and 1997 from MIT and UC Santa Barbara.  In her 20 year career, she has held roles in basic research, applied research, R&D management, and business management, and her career has taken her around the world.  She founded Chromatic 3D Materials, a 3D printing startup, in 2016 and it has since progressed through Series A and NSF Phase II SBIR financing.  A career in chemistry has presented opportunities that she would not have imagined or sought during graduate school.  Cora will share her story about her career and family decision points and their consequences (intended or otherwise).  In addition, she will discuss the technology behind Chromatic 3D Materials and the decision to start a company.
