Entrepreneur-at-heart. Authentic Leader.
Seasoned and scarred CEO, COO & Chairman
Colin embraces the core principles of integrity and trust. Authentic, he leads with his heart to inspire others to unlock their fullest potential. Human-Being first. Human-Doing second.
When others pressure his values, it's a signal for him to be tough.
Colin has a PhD in Biomedical Engineering with over 20 years of experience in the medical device, biotech and pharma business sectors. Having raised over CHF 35 million for start-ups, including the one he founded in 2009, he has lived through the ups, many downs and (survived) many crises. That is what it takes to build something from nothing.
Besides. If it was easy, everyone would do it, right?
Colin coaches first-time entrepreneurs who have successfully raised money, Fortune 500 executives and is a trained and Certified Forum Facilitator (CFF) of YPO.
Love what you do. Do what you can't.
Colin knows first hand what it's like to start something from scratch that you truly believe in. It is tough, full of emotional ups and downs, you need to persevere, you get rejected, insulted, and people doubt you every step of the way. But despite all this, you keep going. Because you are trying to make a difference in this world. You love what you do, and you're doing it because nobody else has done it.
If this speaks to you, then you have much in common with Colin, and he can help you.
Colin helps entrepreneurs, founders and people navigate the art of the start. He has contributed to raising over $35 million in start-up funds and success always starts with clear, concise, powerful well-backed messages.
Prior to his life as a Healthtech Entrepreneur, Colin worked in marketing and sales in medical devices. He is an Engineer (geek) by training (McGill, Canada) and did his geeky PhD in Biomedical Engineering (EPFL, Switzerland).
Integrity and trust are important values to Colin. He leads from his heart to inspire others to be the best they can be.
