February 3, 2013. Chemist John Sofranko says the best time to start your own company is at the beginning of your career or at the end.
Lucky for him, starting his company at the end of his career provided him with a wealth of knowledge in a now-prominent scientific field of study.
His 3-year-old company, Bio2Electric, is developing technologies for the conversion of bio-renewable fuels to power. Most recently, the company received a $600,000 grant from the Department of Energy to create a reactor that converts natural gas to gasoline while also creating energy.
