Could we let this go without letting Wofvillian’s know?
A Cambridge CEO’s drive to “evangelize” her company’s nanotechnology coating systems has resulted in large-scale success.
Cambridge NanoTech founder and CEO Jill Becker turned her Harvard chemistry thesis research into a rapidly growing company whose revenue increased 186 percent from 2008 to 2010, hitting $17.7 million.
“Through the economic downturn, that’s pretty impressive,” Becker said. “We really help other companies solve their problems in order to get products to market, or improve the lifetime of products, and that’s why we’ve seen so much growth.” …
“We’ve done everything from coating silver jewelry to optical to energy, nanostructures, electronics, coating drill bits and biomedical applications,” Becker said. “One of our customers uses it to coat hip replacements.”
Becker developed a love for chemistry in high school, which led to an undergraduate degree from the University of Toronto and a Harvard doctorate in the subject. [more]
