Forming the Founding Team and Seizing the Opportunity

Gajus Worthington, Fluidigm

Gajus Worthington, co-founder of Fluidigm, talks about how the three members of the founding team of Fluidigm met in Stanford Physics professor Doug Osheroff’s lab. Though the men went in separate directions after college, the bond that had formed between them remained. When one of them approached the two others with a business proposition about ten years later based on his research at Caltech, they joined him, and Fluidigm was formed.
