Cole completed his undergraduate degree at Boston College in Economics and Biochemistry where he developed technical skills through research related to antibiotic resistance and bolstered his business skills through involvement in communities such as the Entrepreneur Society. He also worked as both a commercial real estate agent in Phoenix, Arizona and as a member of a robotics start-up out of Arizona State University, forging strong interpersonal skills through cold calling and professional salesmanship and gaining experience evaluating ideas in a small, highly maneuverable start-up.
As part of his ESTEEM thesis project, Cole is crafting a commercial plan to take an early-stage cancer diagnostic to market. In doing so, Cole is continuing his commitment to building mutually beneficial skills in Business and Biochemistry with the goal of finding deep connections between these domains to develop advanced technologies.
