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.
