Steve started his first big entrepreneurial success, Mitos, in 2001 with hardly a cent to his name. Without ever raising outside money Steve built Mitos into a global company in the biotech manufacturing field prior to selling it in 2007 at the age of 29 to a Fortune 500 company. Under Steve’s guidance Mitos developed several critical innovations and patents which transformed the manufacturing process of biological drugs and vaccines and allowed Mitos to develop a global sales and distribution network.
Following the sale of Mitos, Steve co-founded DreamIt Ventures, a new business accelerator model. Forbes recently ranked DreamIt the #3 accelerator in the world.
The successes and efficiency of DreamIt have been remarkable. Companies that have come out of DreamIt include SeatGeek, LevelUp, Meerkat, Notehall, Adaptly, Elevate, Biomeme and over 300 others.
In 2010 Steve published “We are all Born Entrepreneurs” in which he uses his story and those of over a dozen other entrepreneurs to explain what drives entrepreneurs, while at the same time sharing lessons learned from the success — and failures — of entrepreneurs.
