Dr. Stephen Di Biase

Co-Founder and Director at VentureForge, LLC

I'm an innovator, author, and entrepreneur. I am Founder and Managing Director of the early stage accelerator VentureForge, LLC, and a consulting practice focused on mentoring CEOs and Founding Teams of technology based start-ups. I help them demystify the "fuzzy front end" of their businesses with an emphasis on converting their innovations into profitable enterprises.

I have deep expertise in specialty chemical technologies and was VP, RD&E for Lubrizol and Chief Science Officer for Diversey (Johnson Wax). I also also taught people how to become entrepreneurs via a course, most recently at Benedictine University, where I was an adjunct professor teaching "Applied Innovation: A Path to Entrepreneurship". I've demonstrated that innovation is a discipline that can be learned and mastered.
