Matt Angle is the founder and CEO of Paradromics, a venture-backed company that is building neurotechnologies to address unmet needs in mental and physical health. These chips will act as modems for the brain, allowing it to exchange data directly with a computer. In doing so, brain-computer interfaces (BCI) can turn many long-standing challenges in medicine, such as paralysis, blindness, deafness, and even mental illness, into solvable data problems. Paradromics’ first product will be a specialized data interface that will allow completely paralyzed patients to control a computer directly using their thoughts.
Matt is a scientist-entrepreneur with a B.S. from Carnegie Mellon University and PhD in Neuroscience from the University of Heidelberg. He conducted his doctoral studies at the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research and his postdoctoral studies at Stanford University. Paradromics, which he founded in 2015, boasts a team of unparalleled domain experts and advisors in the BCI field. He considers his greatest accomplishment to be the team that he has assembled at Paradromics “When it comes to raw talent and shared vision we are second to none.”
