Creating Strong Vision and Culture for Your Start-Up


A strong vision and company culture is a must for the success of any life science start-up.

It’s up to the leadership of the organization to create this framework for success.

Learn from successful serial entrepreneur and executive coach Michel Kripalani on how to effectively communicate the vision for your organization and develop a culture of discipline and accountability to execute on that vision. Michel will address common frustrations start-ups face such as maintaining control, managing cash flow, and overcoming obstacles. He will also share key takeaways to effectively communicate and align team members on a shared vision and establish accountability while cultivating a positive work environment.

  • Michel Kripalani

    Michel Kripalani, Professional EOS® Implementer / Business Coach

    Michel has a 33+ year history of helping entrepreneurial companies consistently deliver extraordinary products and results.


    As founder of four companies, Michel has seen tremendous success (Placing #114 on the Inc 500, #1 selling PC game, #1 paid app on the App Store, and much more). He has also lived through some painful “learning moments” (major projects canceled, layoffs, shutting down a business, etc.).

    After one particularly painful experience in his early 30s, Michel decided that he needed to properly learn how to run a business so that he would not repeat the same mistakes. This led to a decades-long obsession with systems, processes, management techniques and leadership development.


    Many years ago, Michel decided that it was time to give back. He is passionate about helping entrepreneurs get what they want from their business. He combines his passion for coaching, with his decades of entrepreneurial experience, and the effective EOS system for a powerful cocktail.


    Together, these make for an exceptionally powerful business coach.
