Speaker Biography:
Shawn H. Glinter| Founder & CEO, Pendant Biosciences
For over 20 years successful serial entrepreneur Shawn Glinter has been in love with helping students, faculty & entrepreneurs with their startups and early stage company’s. His background reveals a vast experience and explains the passion he's shown as he has helped, advised, and worked with over 9 dozen first time founders of startups and mentored over 1000’s of companies.

Shawn's strengths are as a startup operator, building companies, and understanding the challenges faced while executing the proof of concept validation, acquiring customers, raising capital, and designing strategy. Shawn provides mentorship, counsel, and strategic advise to entrepreneurs.

Shawn’s career began in emergency medicine and hospital administration (George Washington University Health System and MedStar Health in Washington, DC, and Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN). He then launched a SAAS startup focused around the utilization of AED’s and the implementation of Public Access Defibrillation Programs. Not long after that, he started a technology company, which sold to a firm in Silicon Valley. After a couple of false starts and several successful startups, Shawn became a founding partner in a medical reimbursement company that ran out of gas… Through that experience, Shawn learned a lot about himself and entrepreneurship as well.

Most recently, Shawn was a co-founder & CEO of a life sciences (water technology) company for an entity located in the USA, Canada, and Europe. In just over 3.5 years he successfully grew that company from $600K to 11M (which eventually sold). Shawn is currently the Founder & CEO of the biotechnology startup Pendant Biosciences (formerly Nanoferix) an advanced materials company developing innovative surface coating and drug delivery technologies using a unique, polymer-based platform. The company is initially focused on applications within the orthopedic market, and its lead product candidate is a surface modification intended to reduce the risk of infection associated with certain orthopedic implants. Pendant is currently a Johnson & Johnson Innovations JLABS Company.

Shawn recently received a Faculty appointment at the University of Louisville, Schools of Medicine, in the Department of Neurological Surgery, as the Director of Innovation & Entrepreneurship. Shawn is currently the Entrepreneur in Residence at Belmont University and a Mentor in Residence at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, TN. Shawn has spent the last eight years as one of the Master Mentors at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center. He also a mentors for the Life Science Tennessee Mentor Program, the JumpStart Foundry, the Co.Lab accelerator program in Chattanooga, and is a Master Mentor for Launch TN (a state wide accelerator program).

Shawn is married to his wife Nicole and they have a 9-year-old boy, Jordan. “I love being a Dad, Husband, and Entrepreneur every day of my life.”
