Kaplan Institute Presents a Virtual “The Disruptors” Women Speakers Series: Conversation with Caralynn Nowinski Collens, CEO and Co-Founder of Dimension Inx

Join us in conversations with Chicago’s female leaders in technology and innovation to celebrate March’s Women’s History Month.

Caralynn Nowinski Collens heads Dimension Inx, an emerging leader in biofabrication, whose 3D-Painting Materials Design and Manufacturing System offers the versatility, manufacturability, and affordability necessary for widespread adoption of tissue-engineered regenerative medical products. Nowinski Collens previously was the co-founder and chief executive officer of UI LABS, a first-of-its-kind technology organization focused on the digital future of industries, which she built from concept in late 2011 through launch in 2014, raising $200 million-plus in investment and ultimately spinning out two business units as independent entities (MxD Digital Manufacturing Institute and City Tech Collaborative) in 2019. After starting her first company while a joint medical/business student at the University of Illinois at Chicago, she spent her early career in venture capital and corporate finance, primarily focused on technology-based university spin-outs. She earned her B.S. with honors from Northwestern University.
