Logan Graves on Creating a Science Startup with Guest Host Kris Ford

In this episode, we do something a bit new, in that I am the person being interviewed by previous guest Kris Ford. I talk about my own perspectives on being a co-founder of ELE Optics, the general experience , fun, and stress of a startup. I do want to give warning this episode is lighter on technical aspects or science and instead focuses on our experience in business. Kris is an excellent interviewer and I believe sheds light on some interesting topics. We also touch upon Kris’ experience in his own startup. If you are interested in my own thoughts on a startup, or hearing two scientists talk about the business and ethical considerations of forming a company, please give it a listen!
