Event Details

From Tech to Genetic Testing: A Personal Journey

Matthew Rabinowitz, PhD,  CEO of Natera, a prenatal informatics-based genetic testing company, will talk about his path from a Stanford engineer to a successful tech entrepreneur with a $100 MM exit from his last startup to starting a life sciences venture because of a family member’s personal tragedy. Drawing on expertise from his seemingly unrelated background, he embarked on a journey with the goal of ensuring that other families need not experience similar pain. Bringing together a team of experts in medicine, engineering, statistics, and genetics, along with his own skills in optimization, signal processing, informatics, and entrepreneurship, he started Natera.  Matthew will speak about what it takes to be successful in the diagnostics space and share his experience about starting companies. Celebrate an exciting year of Entrepreneurs Club at our Holiday Party after the talk. Sponsored by Morgan Lewis.

Pizza and networking.
