TO BOARD OF ADVISORS
Joseph Piche to Join Business and Science Revolutionaries as Member of the Nanobusiness
The new board accurately reflects the confluence of critical sectors -- business, finance, government, science, and academia - that are working together to speed the development of the business of small technology.
“We’re proud of the support the NanoBusiness Alliance has received from important members of divergent communities,” said F. Mark Modzelewski, executive director and co-founder of the NanoBusiness Alliance, “and our board of advisors represents a veritable ‘who’s who’ from the worlds of science, technology, government and business. We’re honored that Mr. Piche has elected to join this prestigious board, and look forward to working closely with him to help shape the future of business developments in nanotechnology.”
”I am pleased to have an opportunity to contribute to this respected organization that is playing a critical role in the conversion of nanotechnology to real nanobusiness,” said Mr. Piche. “Nanotechnology is the rising tide that will raise the level of international commerce by bringing disruptive new products to market that will improve the quality of life.”
Nanotechnology is the manipulation, placement, measurement, and modeling of matter at the level of atoms and molecules. It is central to new developments in defense and aerospace, materials and manufacturing, life sciences and healthcare, IT and electronics, and nearly every other sector of the global economy.
Mr. Piche will work alongside other NanoBusiness Alliance board members including Newt Gingrich, Former House Speaker, Steven Jurvetson, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Mikhail Roco, NNI, Larry Bock, CEO, NanoSys, and Alan Marty, Entrepreneur-in-Residence, JPMorgan Partners.
