Earlier in his career, at the age of 28, Mr. Babcock created and led a new family business venture based on seven products from his four innovative patents and expanded manufacturing to seven plants around the U.S, and licensing manufacturing overseas. The start-up venture was "banked" by six newly created family trusts. The company merged in 1985, and Mr. Babcock shortly thereafter began actively forming, investing in and assisting new technology start-up ventures from materials to medical devices to robotics. Mr. Babcock was asked by a major international corporation to assist them with corporate development and venture investing throughout North America, and a few years later, at the request of a large single family office, Mr. Babcock was asked to assist a next generation family member with building a portfolio of private venture investments based on personal interests.
