Stuart Rose is our guest this week, and listeners are going to be impressed with the impact of his STEM story. Stuart always felt a calling to be the “geek interpreter” as he had an amazing ability to communicate and understand the business behind science. He has over 40 years of experience in the pharmaceutical industry and in 2012, broke new ground by establishing the BioScience Center (Center). He is an extreme supporter of STEM startups through his work with the Center and his support of the co-working space, FatPipe ABQ. Stuart also shares with us about his latest endeavor, i.e., green technology and electric vehicles, which have a promising future in our fast and ever-changing economy!
Stuart Rose founded The BioScience Center in Albuquerque in 2012. A serial entrepreneur with more than four decades in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry and the host of more than 20 startups developing vaccines, medical devices, and research tools, Stuart was looking to create something unique and different in Albuquerque and to capitalize on its burgeoning biotech industries. In 2014, he opened FatPipe ABQ as a privately funded collaborative work space providing amazing internet bandwidth speeds, program and training for entrepreneurs, and his advice and guidance to any startup that asks for it. Stuart’s approach to supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem is unique. He believes the private sector needs to take the lead and has proven so by investing in our city’s startup culture.
