Juan Enriquez gave a TED talk in 2009 called “The next species of human,” and video went viral – and is now one of the most popular futurist talks in TED history. In addition to previously founding the Life Sciences Project at the Harvard Business School, Juan is now managing partner in Excell Venture Management in Boston, MA.
