“Everyone has great ideas, but what truly sets a great entrepre- neur apart is the adaptability and resilience in an idea’s execution.”

“I’m motivated to build ventures that transform slow and mature sectors with user-centered design.” After pursuing a dual-degree in medical sciences and business administration, Kevin worked at Innosight, an innovation and strategy consulting firm founded by Clayton Christensen, advising clients on the development of new growth strategies and business models across a wide range of industries spanning from consumer packaged goods to aerospace and defense. Kevin was also recently selected as an IDEO fellow at the Future of Food CoLab, a collaborative incubator with MIT Media Lab and Target to prototype new ventures in urban farming & food transparency with emerging technologies like spectroscopy, microbiome engineering and augmented reality. He has learned through these experiences that leading transformation requires more than just strategic foresight, but also the agility to experiment, fail and learn quickly. During his free time, Kevin designs and manufactures protective gear for caregivers of aggressive children with autism that has been featured at the Boston Museum of Science and on CNN. A former competitive lifeguard and member of the Toronto Symphony Youth Orchestra, Kevin strongly believes in a multi-disciplinary approach to foster creativity and inspiration in high-performance teams.
