Basil is a graduate of MIT with an SB in Computer Science; an SB in Economics, and an SM in Operations Research. He received an MBA from the University of Chicago, and is still hoping to finish his PhD there in Economics.
Basil has started two companies, and successfully incubated four others. He primarily likes to work in the early stages of getting companies up and running, but will also look at selective later stage opportunities. He has spent a significant amount of time working to spin companies out of universities, including Stanford, Berkeley, Davis, UCSC, UCSB, UCLA, UCSD, USC and Caltech. In Texas he has worked with UT and Rice, and in Boston with MIT, Harvard, BU and BC.
