Join the Galante Program and MassChallenge Winners, Reza Amin and Leila Daneshmandi, on October 29th from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM to learn about their entrepreneurial journey starting with an idea that then transformed into startups.

Reza Amin is the CEO and founder at Bastion and co-founder at Encapsulate. Since 2013 he was working on the design and development of Lab-on-a-chip platforms for medical diagnostics. During his entrepreneurial journey, he has won several competitions and fellowships.

Leila Daneshmandi is a Ph.D. candidate in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Connecticut and the co-founder and COO of Encapsulate. She is currently a General Electric Fellow for Innovation at UConn’s School of Engineering and was recently selected as a 2020 Women of Innovation Finalist by the Connecticut Technology Council and Connecticut Center for Advanced Technology. More recently and under her leadership, Encapsulate was awarded the prestigious “Technology in Space Prize,” valued at $653k, from The International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory in partnership with Boeing. Through this award, Encapsulate will have the opportunity to deploy their technology onto the International Space Station.
