About Devon

Here is a little of my own background to give the reader some sense of where I am coming from.  I am an entrepreneur and Micronotes is my second start-up company; why I am doing this again is not clear, perhaps a genetic abnormality.  I founded a high-tech filter manufacturing company in the early 90’s, which we re-ventured as a semiconductor equipment company in 1995.  We grew that business and sold it in 2005 to a publicly-traded multi-national semiconductor equipment components maker, where I spent 2 years building-out a new business unit. I then left and took a year off to study at MIT as a Sloan Fellow where I earned an M.S. in management; that was a very cool and fun experience but, a lot of work.  Two weeks after graduating MIT I formed Micronotes and I have since been joined by 2 of my former classmates.  My undergraduate training was in biology and chemistry.
