Wasiq is a co-founder and Managing Partner of Quantum Insight. He works with Fortune 500 companies on the adoption and commercialization of materials and nanotechnology with applications in energy, IT and medicine. Wasiq also works with entrepreneurs, early-stage startups and multiple venture funds in to help emerging nanotechnologies cross the “valley of death”.

Before founding Quantum Insight, he was part of the founding team and Senior Vice President of Products of Clickmarks, an enterprise infrastructure software company, subsequently acquired by Semotus Solutions. Wasiq received his Ph.D. in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he worked in the group headed by Nobel laureate Jerome Friedman. He was part of the team that discovered a fundamental particle called the top quark at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in 1995, one of the most prominent physics results of the decade. He is an author of more than 50 scientific and technical publications, and is cited as an inventor on 8 US patents, granted and applied.

He has co-authored a widely recognized report on the potential of nanotechnology for the California Commission for Science and Technology (CCST). He is also the co-founder and Steering Committee Chair of the MIT Stanford UC Berkeley Nanotechnology Forum. Wasiq currently works with PCAST (Presidential Council of Advisors on Science and Technology) on issues related to energy.

Dr. Jerome I. Friedman
Dr. Jerome I. Friedman received his Nobel Prize for the discovery of quarks in 1990. He developed and conducted experiments that demonstrated that neutrons and protons are formed of quarks, the fundamental energy packets from which all matter is composed. Prior to this, he was head of the MIT Physics department from 1983 to 1988. More recently, he was the president of the American Physical Society from 1998 to 2000. Currently, Dr. Friedman serves as an Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and consults US administration on scientific and technological development matters.
Dr. Charles Holloway
Dr. Charles Holloway has been on the faculty of the Stanford Graduate School of Business since 1968. Currently, he holds the Kleiner, Perkins, Caufield & Byers Professorship in Management, and is also co-director of the Stanford Center for Entrepreneurial Studies at the Graduate School. He holds a BSEE from the University of California, Berkeley, as well an M.S. in nuclear engineering and a Ph.D. in business administration from UCLA.
