CTV welcomes new Executives in Residence


Dear Colleagues,

Now in its second year, CTV’s Executives in Residence (XIR) Program continues to connect Columbia technologies and researchers with seasoned industry executives, venture capitalists, and serial entrepreneurs. With deep domain expertise, our XIRs have been an invaluable resource to the Columbia community.

I am very pleased to announce five new and one returning XIRs who will be working with CTV for the next three months to help accelerate the path of promising Columbia technologies toward market success: Brian Phillips, Kathy Timko, Robert Colao, Bruce Conway, Shane Eten, and Sam Kongsamut (full bios here). These six talented individuals span fields of software, life sciences, government/defense, manufacturing, clean tech, drug discovery, telecom and IP consulting, with experience at Johnson & Johnson, IBM, Nokia, IDT Telecom, TechnoServe, and many start-ups between them.

We encourage Columbia researchers to reach out to their CTV licensing officers or email us at to arrange a meeting with any of these great mentors.

Beyond the XIR program, CTV continues to look for opportunities to showcase Columbia innovations to industry and investors. On November 6, we will continue our partnership with 10 other New York research institutions, for the NYC Emerging Technologies Summit, focusing on promising biomedical technologies. We hope to see you there!


Orin Herskowitz
Executive Director, CTV
VP for Intellectual Property & Technology Transfer
