How does one begin a path towards entrepreneurship from a STEM background? What does running a startup look like, and what lessons might one learn along this journey? Hear the answers to these questions and more at the Entrepreneurship Club's first session of its Seminar Series! Our special guest is Stephanie Culler, Caltech chemical engineering alum and CEO of Persephone Biosciences, described below: 

Persephone Biosciences develops live biotherapeutic products to modulate the metabolism of gut microbes, for applications in disease prevention and cure. We take a unique engineering approach using systems and synthetic biology to understand the complexities of the microbiome.

The first half of the event will be Stephanie's presentation on her career path, and the second half will be dedicated to an open Q&A from the audience! Be sure to join if you've ever been interested in starting your own company or even working at a startup.
