MANIAC TALK: Can introvert scientists become good entrepreneurs?

 I will present my version of the answer, through my journey from Argentina to Seattle to Maryland, and beyond. (Stockholm was never in my potential itinerary).  All the way from industrial lasers to solar pumped lasers in earth orbit, to Sigma’s airborne lidars to map our planet; an enterprise now owned by Leica Geosystems.  NASA and other US government agencies are some of the best venture partners an entrepreneur can wish for, and I will explain why.
