About September's Seminar

Join us for the first event in this year’s Wildcatalyst Seminar Series. Our theme this year is “Women in Research and Innovation,” and we will be highlighting innovative and entrepreneurial-minded women who have founded or led research-based businesses. This month, our speaker is Karleen Seybold, co-founder and CEO of Digital Skin Imaging, a six-year-old digital medical imaging company modernizing the way physicians visually capture and compare skin changes. Karleen currently holds five patents for image sequencing, alignment, and a skin cancer detection display module. Before co-founding Digital Skin Imaging, Karleen was a Senior Program Manager at Raytheon Company in Tucson, AZ for 17 years, where she led new business development efforts through innovative technology applications and directed an international new business program in missile defense.

In this seminar, Karleen will share her experiences and lessons learned while starting and growing a company from the ground up. She will discuss the successes and pitfalls she has encountered along the way and will provide her perspective on the unique challenges that female innovators and entrepreneurs can face.

Who Should Attend:

  • Anyone interested in start-ups, early stage ventures, or curious how to convert an idea into something real
  • Anyone interested in innovation and UNH research
  • Industry professionals
  • Students, faculty, and staff
  • Seasoned business leaders who would like to meet the next generation of business leaders
  • The entire NH community interested in supporting, promoting, and encouraging new companies to start and stay in NH


The official Twitter hashtag for this event is #Wildcatalyst.




About Our Speaker:

Karleen Seybold is the Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer at Digital Skin Imaging (DSI), which produces the DermSpectra Automated Total Body Imaging System. Bringing more than 20 years of complex product development, engineering, and executive management experience to DermSpectra, Karleen leads the strategic planning, operations, and technology development at DSI. In 2015, DermSpectra was named as a top 10 finalist out of 154 companies in the Arizona Innovation Challenge. Karleen Seybold was awarded an Outstanding Female Entrepreneur award by Inside Tucson Business in March of 2015.

DermSpectra’s imaging solution strives to improve early detection of melanomas and treatment outcomes for patients and physicians by providing standardized, high-definition digital skin images that enable comparison of skin lesions and body changes over time. DermSpectra fills a critical gap in the digital skin imaging (DSI) market. Despite more than 5.0 million new cases of skin cancer diagnosed each year in the U.S., there are few readily available tools for screening and early detection of skin cancer at the total body level, making the DermSpectra an industry-leading technology solution. DermSpectra was the 2015 recipient of Best Use of Technology and Best Manufacturing awards by Inside Tucson Business and a top ten finalist in 2016 Los Angeles Business Journal, Patrick Soon-Shiong Innovation Award.

Before co-founding DermSpectra, Karleen was a Senior Program Manager at Raytheon Company in Tucson, AZ for 17 years where she led new business development efforts through innovative technology applications and directed an international new business effort in missile defense.

She holds five patents for image sequencing, alignment, and a skin cancer detection display module and received six Technology Achievement awards from Raytheon. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northern Arizona University and her MBA in Global Management from Thunderbird International School of Global Management in Phoenix, AZ. Her work has been published in national and international trade publications. She is native of Concord, NH and a mother of two young daughters, adopted from Ethiopia and China.
