About the Author

Ricardo B. Levy is an executive and entrepreneur whose
career spans more than three decades of founding and building
successful businesses. Born and raised in South America to
a European immigrant family, he completed engineering studies
in the United States at Stanford and Princeton before returning
to South America to run a family business. In 1969 he sold
the business and returned to the United States to complete his
PhD at Stanford in the field of catalytic chemistry. In 1974, after a
number of years in the petroleum and petrochemical industry, he
cofounded his first entrepreneurial venture, Catalytica, a research
and development firm serving the chemical, pharmaceutical, and
clean energy industries. The firm’s discoveries resulted in more
than one hundred patents and led to the formation of three companies,
one of which became, under Levy’s leadership, the largest
supplier to the pharmaceutical industry in North America.
Dr. Levy currently serves on public and private corporate
boards of directors and the advisory board of the Santa Clara
University Miller Center for Social Entrepreneurship, a global
incubator of social entrepreneurs. He is a lecturer at the Stanford
University Chemical Engineering Department, where he teaches a
course on entrepreneurship and new venture creation. Throughout
his life, Dr. Levy has pursued a keen interest in spirituality and
personal growth and has continually applied his diverse studies to
his roles as a business leader, mentor, and teacher.
