Gary Magnant is currently CEO of Triple Sharp Venture Engineering, LLC and a general partner of ICV Venture Engineering Fund I, LLC. He is the Co-Founder and former CEO of Thrive Bioscience, Inc., Sage Science, Inc. and Owl Scientific (now part of Thermo Fisher), and the former Vice President of MJ Research (now Bio-Rad). Gary holds numerous patents and inventions and numerous bioscience related board positions. He is also the Co-founder and former President of ActivBiotics (Lexington, MA) and ThermoCeramix (Montreal, Canada), as well as the former Chairman, Trustee, Hallowell Awardee, of Stoneridge, a private Montessori school in Beverly, MA (now Harborlight-Stoneridge).
Gary believes that there is a better way to start life science companies than traditional venture capital. His experience in founding and building Thrive Bioscience in May 2014 was so personally and professionally transformative, that he founded Triple Sharp Venture Engineering to help construct other life science companies. Triple Sharp’s mission constructs new companies with two aims. First, the company strives to own and efficiently manage risk, and second, the company build super-engaged management teams. Triple Sharp Venture Engineering navigates its client companies through growth, financings, and exits.
