Congratulations to Dr. Bogdan Knezevic

Posted 2021-10-16

For years, he was one of the fastest swimmers in Canada (on track to compete in the 2016 Olympics), held down a 4.0 GPA and won a Rhodes Scholarship in 2015. After that, this years recipient of the Early Achievement Arch Award went to work at the Creative Destruction Lab in Toronto, followed by a dreamy job at Entrepreneur First (a talent tech accelerator). But Dr. Bogdan Knezevics latest mission has morphed into the greatest moon shot of all: quit a great job, spend the summer trekking the ridiculously remote 1,100-km-long Great Divide Trail (from Waterton to Jasper national parks) and then launch a startup with two of his best mates. And what might this new venture be? Top secret, says the 30-year-old whose PhD examined how genomics could be used to identify new drug targets by applying machine learning, although the sweet spot, admits the cagey Knezevic, BSc15, might be at the crossroads of software/product and the acceleration of science. Stand by!
