Lab to Market starts in the classroom and moves to a project-based setting.

Their company, SymbiO2, is Anil’s Lab to Market project. After shaping the business plan in Lab to Market, the duo was accepted into the StartR Accelerator, a six month-long program for Rady students and alumni that is focused on early stage company development. “StartR has been a great experience for us, especially with all of the mentoring we’ve received,” Sadarangani said. “We are both trying to set up our own company for the first time, so the guidance provided by mentors in terms of where to focus and how to develop was extremely useful. The ability to network is vital to growing a business, and Rady helped both Sadarangani and Volker expand their networks. Said Volker, “Because of the Rady MBA and StartR program, we now have contact with experts in the wound healing industry. That has been very helpful for our company.” SymbiO2 won the grand prize at the Triton Innovation Network (TriNet) Challenge, a competition that spotlights commercially promising, environmentally focused technologies, and placed first in the UC San Diego Entrepreneur Challenge.
