Kevin Crommelin

Product Manager

For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the concept that nearly everything we own, use, and interact with was originally nothing more than a thought in someone’s head. As a kid I remember thinking that anyone who could create something from nothing was like a superhero or a magician. It wasn’t until later, when I started conjuring my own ideas into reality, that I realized determination and resourcefulness had much more to do with the materialization of an idea than magic. Over time I grew a great respect for these people I call “makers”, who create and shape the products, businesses, services, and ultimately the world we live in.

I took my turn at being a “maker” when I founded the app company “Friender” while I was still finishing my bachelor’s degree at Arizona State University. It was a wild rollercoaster of ups and downs over several years, but I was ultimately able to turn my idea, an app to help people make new friends, into a real tangible product on the Apple App Store. I learned more through the successes and failures during my time as a startup founder than I ever thought was possible and ultimately gained an even greater respect for “makers”.

I am excited and proud to be a Xinovian because we are empowering “makers” to invent, innovate, collaborate, and ultimately change the world. I am working on building and improving the community platform that connects Xinova’s innovators. It is fulfilling to be a “maker” again, working with an amazing team building a revolutionary platform that will change R&D forever. However, what is even more fulfilling is knowing that the platform we are building will be a hub for new ideas that themselves will inevitably be turned into real tangible solutions by our network of “makers”, the Xinova innovators.
