Bruce Ganem was just awarded the American Chemical Society's (ACS) 2007 Award for Creative Invention. The award recognizes "the successful application of research in chemistry and/or chemical engineering that contributes to the material prosperity and happiness of people."
He won the award for solving a crucial problem in the production of paclitaxel, one of the most successful drugs used to treat ovarian, breast and lung cancer and a promising agent in fighting coronary artery disease.
eClips is fortunate to have captured some of Ganem's insights. Listen to Ganem discuss the challenges which face scientists who are operating in the business world.
You can also hear Ganem discuss his own background and how he really considers himself to be an accidental entrepreneur.

"Being young has this incredible benefit that being old by definition doesn't. You don't have a box to think in. No idea is impossible. However, you have to combine that with older people. Because what older people have by definition - that younger people by definition don't - is a sense of reality. And if you combine the two, you get to create ideas that have never been thought about, but can actually be implemented. That's a cool combination."
- Tom Szaky, Founder of TerraCycle
The eClips collection contains comments from the entire spectrum of business. One area that we find particularly fascinating are the comments from over 40 "young" entrepreneurs (under the age of 30). Some express unbridled optimism that they will change the world. Others share the war stories and the realization that entrepreneurship isn't only about being your own boss. Regardless of the story and the outcome, all of them have wisdom to share.
