science to profits

About Richard Caro and this Blog

“Helping to turn scientific and technological advances into profitable businesses” is the common theme that unites my various work roles. 

Every day I learn something new, even though I have been doing this stuff now for over 30 years. This site is a place to capture ideas and things I learn. I hope you find it interesting.

Richard G Caro You can see my official bio here.


What I spend my (work) time on at present:

  • Advisor to emerging growth companies (as CEO, TangibleFuture);
  • Co-founder Tech-enhanced Life;
  • Occasional angel investor (AngelList, past member of various Silicon Valley angel groups);
  • Student/analyst/pundit on the topic of how to turn “science into profits” faster and cheaper — avoiding the all-too-common missteps along the way. (See “Resources Section“).


Why might my insights be useful?

Here are some of the experiences that underpin my ideas and opinions.

  • I am an inventor (20+ issued patents);
  • I have been a CTO, and led product development teams in startups and mid-sized companies, working on such “world-first” products as the first LASIK system for vision correction;
  • I have been a startup CEO, and personally raised multiple rounds of capital from blue chip Venture Capitalists in Silicon Valley and New York;
  • I have been an active advisor to a significant number of companies and have learned how to give effective advice that is relevant to the situations of others, and  not just to tell them “how we did it”;
  • In the course of working with a sizable number of companies in multiple industry verticals, I have seen patterns emerge of what does and does not work, and I have spent quite a bit of time trying to connect the dots and turn this into useful insights.
