About Candice

Looking for co-founder in serious/health games: Ever wanted to apply your gaming programming/development skills to a health game that could change the way people look at healthcare?

As CEO and CSO (Chief Scientific Officer) I have the needed clinical/scientific and management experience ( 18 years in the biopharma/healthcare industry), a comprehensive business plan and have already attracted the attention of local state-run start-up incubator who is providing high profile angel, VC and healthcare executive advisors. I recently enlisted an advisor from a software firm that completed a successful IPO. My PhD in neuroscience and MBA focused on technology innovation provide skills needed for this multidisciplinary product (a health game).

As a three time entrepreneur/intrapreneur, I know what it takes to create a successful startup. Prior ventures include a biopharma contracting firm and a division for a venture-capital backed start-up. I have extensive experience and contacts in the biopharma/healthcare industry.

What I don't have is the technical gaming experience to develop the exciting game I envision. Looking for co-founder (CTO) who is passionate about health games, is creative, wants to lead, is willing to fully invest themselves in not only creating a game, but launching a company for long-term success. You will join an existing team with prototype development already underway.

Co-founder must be skilled in Unity and/or API or be a game designer, have previously developed successful games (preferrably revenue generating health or serious games), be willing to work in a team, creative and excited about shaping a product as well as building a team/firm. Prefer New York City metro area, but willing to consider others.
