John Younger, Akadeum’s co-founder and chief science officer, was recently featured in a Science Magazine article on entrepreneurs. Alongside other science-based startup leaders, John discussed his journey from working in emergency medicine at the University of Michigan to developing a small microbubble cell sorting technology company.
John and co-founder Brandon McNaughton launched Akadeum in an incubator in downtown Ann Arbor. “From a table in the basement, the two took preorders, engaged a contract manufacturer, and started their first production run. Within months, Younger and McNaughton raised their first round of pre-seed investment, some of which was used to replace Younger’s previous salary.”
