The Whiting-Turner Lecture Series celebrates the fearlessness of entrepreneurship and brings leading technology enterprise thinkers who deal with the real-world challenges of a fast-paced, global economy to campus.

Guest Speaker:
Joseph Sciamanna ('18), President and Owner, Heliostatix

This lecture will highlight Joseph Sciamanna's experience starting a biotech company as an undergraduate student in the A. James Clark School of Engineering's Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering, highlighting his story, lessons learned, and insights gleaned on barriers to entry, time constraints, and startup funding. The goal of this lecture is to convince students that starting a business early is not only possible, but also advantageous.

Mr. Sciamanna is the owner of Heliostatix Biotechnology and graduate of the University of Maryland. He started his business while a junior at UMD using research on drug delivery he had performed. Within a year of graduating from UMD, he built a multi-million dollar business using what he had learned over his college career at the Clark School.
