Vacca Tech also provides digital product design and low-code development and deployment of websites for small business who need an e-commerce solution.

Projects & Collaborations

I’ve worked on a variety of projects for new innovations, products and programs throughout my career. Working with entrepreneurs, startups and large organizations has enabled me to collaborate with a wide variety of talented individuals across many industry sectors. As an entrepreneur, I’ve led the development of hands-on programs that are helping the next generation of life science startup translate and commercialize discoveries from the bench.

As one of the founders of the Cambridge Hackspace, a non-profit makerspace, we developed a creative hub for individuals, makers and inventors to collaborate on projects and access high-end tools such as 3D printers and laser cutters. The Cambridge Hackspace provides a variety of workshops and events for makers and early-stage entrepreneurs who are developing new hardware, IoT and software products.

I’ve collaborated with researchers at some of the leading universities in commercializing new technologies. At Olin College of Engineering, our team developed an innovative AI/AR app that maps indoor living and business areas effortlessly, eliminating the need for expensive cameras or gear. Finally, at UMass Medical, I worked with medical practitioners and led the successful development and manufacturing of 20K scent-infused micro-patches to eliminate odors in face-masks for clinicians and consumers.

I’ve work with startups (SEED and Post Round A) by providing product leadership. As a product manager, I am able to provide strategic level leadership with product strategy, market/competitive research, road-map planning, product vision, GTM coordination; and at an execution level with user research, 0-1 MVPs, sprint management, analytics, etc.
