Dan Greening works for a startup using Agile to develop, design and manufacture a digital handheld single-molecule biosensor that can be used to detect diseases and viruses (like HIV and Zika) within minutes and at a fraction of the price of traditional approaches. After 8 years working in Agile, Dan now uses his Agile knowledge and experience to get this nanotechnology into consumer hands quickly. Dan highlights for Agile Amped that the Agile community generally focuses on software, but in an Agile startup you need to think deeper. “My interest in Agile has always been in Agile companies that produce things that people really find valuable.” Agile startups have to think about the full lifecycle: hardware, firmware, software, cloud.
