Cindy Gerhardt

Passionate about biology in the broadest sense. After starting her career as an academic scientist, Cindy discovered she is an innovator with a lot of energy to turn science into impact. Over the past 30 years, I've focused on the interphase between research and business in the food sector; developing and introducing radically new products to the market, building high performance teams, and most recently, building an open innovation ecosystem for biotech and food tech. Cindy's values are simple; respect people, animals and our planet. Specialities; biotech - foodtech - R&D and innovation management - inspirational leadership - change management - corporates, startups and scaleups - ecosystem development - fund raising - coaching - triple helix collaborations.
