In the first 24 months of the program, the startups were able to leverage $410 million in private investments funds, creating a unique model at a nominal cost to the federal government and successfully working with both entrepreneurs and investors. Kira previously managed her own consulting business helping innovative startups succeed.
Her previous positions include serving as the Executive Director of Operations at Chrysalis BioTherapeutics Inc., and the Director of Strategic Relations for the Houston Technology Center (HTC) at NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC), where she facilitated local and international partnerships to leverage JSC’s innovative technologies, capabilities and expertise.
