About the speaker...
Ted Moskal – is a seasoned executive and accomplished entrepreneur. Since moving to Arkansas in 2003, he has assisted various Arkansas groups in knowledge based job creation. He founded two Arkansas based biosciences companies: Litmus and Vivione Biosciences, taking Vivione to an IPO in 2013 on the Canadian stock exchange.
With the support of a forward thinking family, Ted started his first business at the age of twelve—a landscaping business. At the same time, his younger brother (ten) started a competing landscaping business. The two were forced to merge after about a year by their father. At the time of merger, the two had over a dozen employees and around a 100 customers.
Ted received his Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering from Penn State University in 1986. After college he was recruited into a number of leadership positions within a variety of technology companies. He moved south in the 1990’s, working for FedEx on aerospace product development and corporate strategy.
Ted strongly believes that with dedication, anyone can be a successful inventor and entrepreneur. He believes the key is working ½ days—you just need to decide which 12 hours to work out of the 24 available.
Those interested in joining the club are encouraged to attend the meeting. Dues are not required at their first meeting; however, attendees are responsible for paying for their own meal.
