I'm Frank Zenie. I have spent twenty-five years as an entrepreneur and Chief Executive, building innovative, market leading and profitable companies. I served as President/CEO of Waters Associates (now Waters Corporation) 1969 through 1980 and co-founded Zymark Corporation in 1981, serving as its President/CEO through 1996.

I am currently an entrepreneurial coach, investor and director for a number of early-stage, technology-based companies - many healthcare related. I also serve as Chairmans of VelQuest Corporation and Process Packaging & Control Corporation. In addition, I am a trustee of The Zenie Foundation, a private foundation dedicated to education support for deserving students who are often unable to access traditional financial support.
The third edition of my book, StreetSmart Entrepreneuring (SSE) was published in August 2011. It summarizes my entrepreneurial experiences and insights. I intend to spend the next year or so sharing this material through university business schools, entrepreneurial development organizations and private company consulting. My goal is not to teach small business mechanics, but to develop awareness to entrepreneurial:
I began my formal teaching as an MIT Sloan Senior Lecturer leading “Starting and Running a Successful Technology-based Company” and I'm currently lecturing at several universities in addition to my corporate coaching and Director roles.
I have a BS in Electrical Engineering from MIT and an MBA from the University of Rhode Island. I also have been extensively published in the trade magazines.
