Using Data to Understand Potholes, Real Estate Investing, and Graphene
Data is becoming more and more and more prevalent. In this episode, I chat with Dr. Gordon Chiu about how data uncovers many mysteries of life. Dr. Gordon Chiu completed Wharton’s Advanced Management Program and Harvard’s Business Analytics Program during the latter part of 2022, and co-founded his startup Phenegra in February of 2023. Gordon is pleased to share that Phenegra has won the 2023 Global Tough Technology Prize in the Harvard Business School Alumni New Venture Competition. HBS regards Tough Tech ventures as those working on transformative technology that solves the world’s most important challenges through the convergence of breakthrough science, engineering, and leadership. While his pitch presentation was notably unconventional, Gordon’s technology is undeniable. Phenegra will initially commercialize Dr. Chiu’s discovery of reactive graphene as Graphalt, an asphalt additive that improves the durability, bonding, and oil retention of conventional asphalt. This new asphalt composite is proven to be an effective material for making enduring pothole repairs. With the unrelenting proliferation of potholes, dump-and-go temporary repairs, and the emergence of electric vehicles that are more than 30% heavier than their gasoline and diesel counterparts, Graphalt will play a significant role in reinforcing transportation infrastructure and mitigating soil, water and air pollution from desiccated asphalt worldwide.
