Solazyme Co-Founder Harrison Dillon

HarrisonDillonWhat’s it like to see an idea grow into something bigger than you ever imagined? This week on Sea Change Radio, host Alex Wise sits down with entrepreneur Harrison Dillon, the co-founder of Solazyme, a biotech company that creates environmentally-friendly synthetic designer oils that can be used in a wide array of products that have traditionally been petroleum-based. Dillon walks us through the evolution of an idea, from spitballing concepts in grad school to seeing Solazyme grow into a multi-million dollar, publicly traded company. He also dives into the science behind this start-up, looks at the various technologies in the biofuel space, and discusses the emerging recognition of the role microbes can play in all sorts of new technologies.
