Ron Shigeta PhD
Forward Looking Biotechnology Investor
As Science Officer of the founding team of three that created IndieBio SF, the first Synthetic Biology Accelerator. IndieBio largely sparked the Startup Biotech venture trend with our first class in 2015.
Operations at IndieBio required versatility and agility. I designed and handled the build for two labs, and performed primary technical diligence on the entire portfolio. I created three week sprints to add capabilities to the firm.
In my spare time I teach Food Innovation course at Santa Clara University's Center for Food Innovation and Entrepreneurship;
and Synthetic Biology at Laney College in Oakland, CA.
