Kairos 50 Award and Dance Party on the NYSE

It’s an honor to have Nanoly Bioscience be named in Kairo’s Top 50 companies started in college.

As part of the Kairos 50, we all got to present our companies on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange! Attendees included the Prince of Jordan, the CEO of AutoDesk, founder of Vonage, CEO of Forbes, and CEO of Johnson & Johnson. I feel so lucky to be able to connect with these people!

Named in “130 Young Entrepreneurs to Watch”

Woke up this morning with an email saying “Congratulations” from a friend. I had no idea what he was talking about so it was a nice surprise to learn about this list Under30CEO.com put out! This was really exciting! I don’t know if I really deserve this yet, but I’ll take it :)

Front Row at the MTV Video Music Awards

Enjoying live performances from Taylor Swift, Pink, Green Day, Alicia Keys, and many more, the MTV VMAs this year was such a well-produced and entertaining event! I attended the event along with 2 other members of the Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation’s Youth Advisory Board. The Foundation’s is “committed to connecting young people in SAFE ways and empowering them with SKILLS and OPPORTUNITIES that will inspire them to create a kinder and braver world.”
