After mentoring Dr. Winnie Chu, founder and CTO of Nanozen, through e@UBC’s Accelerator and Open Office programs, Peter Briscoe is joining Nanozen as full-time CEO. With Peter and other key additions to the team, Nanozen is positioned to take their business to the next level. Nanozen has recently launched their product and is currently raising its first round of investment from local and international investors.

Entrepreneurs-in-Residence work closely with registered ventures through Open Office to give critical advice to early stage startups and entrepreneurs. EiR’s are encouraged to develop close mentor-venture relationships, to help ventures move their business forward.

We’d like to thank Peter for all his contributions to the e@UBC Accelerator and Open Office programs. Congrats to Peter and Winnie, we wish you all the best!
