THERANOS WHISTLEBLOWER AND ENTREPRENEUR

5 x 10 Event for Professional Growth and Success

WHY TYLER SHULTZ IS CAPTIVATING AUDIENCES
Would YOU have the courage to blow the whistle on corporate wrongdoing, knowing that it would cost your job and maybe your family relationships?  Tyler Shultz had to make that decision when, as an employee of Theranos, he realized that the $10 billion biotech start-up Elizabeth Holmes had founded was built on fraud.  Theranos had scammed hundreds of employees, thousands of investors, and millions of patients. Despite strong opposition from his grandfather, a member of the Theranos Board of Directors, Shultz blew the whistle, exposing the fraud andhelping to bring about the dissolution of Theranos and Holmes’s indictment on criminal charges. In a conversation with Lehigh students, Shultz, whom Forbes named to their “30 under 30” Health Care 2017 list, will discuss his time at Theranos and his efforts to expose the truth, the importance of corporate governance, modern-day business ethics, Silicon Valley culture, and the lessons the corporate world can learn from Theranos’ historic fraud.
