As someone who walks the line between academia and entrepreneurship, the Lab was very useful as a means to keep Xanadu on track, achieving necessary milestones we needed to de-risk the company for our first round. For that I am truly indebted…Overall, the Lab has been fundamental to Xanadu’s success.
