Co-Founder and COO, Nanoly Bioscience
Her self-proclaimed “inappropriate jokes” may get her into trouble sometimes, but Nanxi Liu’s love of creating has her in the good books of more than a few high-profile fans. To wit, she co-founded Nanoly Bioscience when she was in college; it develops polymers that enable vaccines to survive without refrigeration. This breakthrough achievement won a Top Research Award from the World Biomaterials Congress, and a Materials and Manufacturing Award from Airbus. Nanxi is also the CEO and Co-Founder of Enplug, a rapidly growing, open digital display software firm that’s attracted the attention of both small businesses and Fortune 500 companies. And the well-earned attention and accolades don’t stop there: Forbes named her one of their 30 Under 30, and Fortune Magazine put her in their Top 10 Most Promising Women Entrepreneurs.
