Skyler Stein leads Gladskin, a biotechnology-driven skincare
brand. Gladskin is a leader in global endolysin technology and uses
its science to improve inflammatory skin conditions by rebalancing
the skin microbiome.
Throughout his career, Skyler has advised, invested in and
developed businesses across technology-driven sectors. Most
recently, at Obvious Ventures, a venture capital firm dedicated to
startups that combine profit and purpose, Skyler focused on
companies commercializing microbiome science to improve human
health. While seeking investment opportunities in microbiome
focused companies, Skyler met the European-based Gladskin team.
Gladskin's endolysin technology developed by Micreos B.V. was the
most impressive applied science in the space. This inspired Skyler
to join the team to further build on Gladskin’s success in Europe
and to make the products available to the millions of Americans
with inflammatory skin conditions.
Skyler holds an M.B.A. from Harvard Business School and a B.A.
from Duke University.
