Technology companies, at startup and growth stage, are often driven by innovative technologists and experienced business people. However, gaps between these skill sets frequently result in unforeseen problems that hinder the companies' growth, or worse, threaten their very existence. Some examples:
Forteus Consulting helps bridge the gap between technology and business. Technologists often make technology decisions that unknowingly impact the business. Business executives often make business decisions that are not fully informed by the technology's strengths and weaknesses. Forteus brings 15 years of experience in cutting edge technologies and 15 years of experience in large and small businesses, together with a disciplined fact-based, data-driven approach to problem solving and business improvement.
Forteus Consulting is led by Dr. Vincent Chun. He worked more than 15 years advancing aerospace technologies for US military and civilian programs; and computational chemistry for rational drug development for the pharmaceutical industry. He also has another 15 years of experience in various business roles, including: management consultant at a global top tier firm, finance strategy and operations at a large technology corporation, and managing portfolio companies at a technology focused venture capital company. Vincent has a PhD in Aeronautics and Astronautics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an MBA from Kellogg School of Management. In his spare time, Vincent likes to travel, teaches tai chi, and hones his figure skating skills as an adult competitor and performer at ice skating shows.
