Dr. Anthony (Tony) Warren received a B.Sc. (1st Cl. Hons.) and Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Birmingham, (UK) followed by post–doctoral research in low temperature superconductivity undertaken at the Universities of Toronto and Illinois. After three years heading a multi-national program in magneto-hydrodynamic power generation, Dr. Warren joined a start-up in Cambridge, England that created and executed new product strategies for major corporations based on a broad range of technologies. As the company, PA Technology, grew rapidly, Tony was responsible for the international operations setting up divisions in Australia, several European locations and finally in Princeton, NJ.

In 1987, Tony co-founded and raised the capital for a 10-year Limited Partnership to create and develop early stage technology-based companies. Over one hundred companies were formed to commercialize proprietary technology during the 10-year life of the partnership. In 1999, he co-founded Strategic Technologies LLC, a boutique investment bank undertaking transactions for corporations with significant intellectual property assets. He was also a venture partner in Adams Capital Management, a nationwide VC firm headquartered in Pittsburgh with over $700MM under management. In 2009 he founded Halare Inc. a telemedicine company for the treatment of chronic diseases.

Dr. Warren joined the Smeal College of Business Administration at Pennsylvania State as Director of the Farrell Center for Corporate Innovation and Entrepreneurship and the Farrell Clinical Professor for Entrepreneurship in 2001. Since then the Center has grown and is now ranked within the top tier of US Centers for Entrepreneurship.

He is the author of many scientific papers, patents as well as articles on innovation and risk finance. His current research interests are centered around scalable problem-based learning pedagogy, improved practices for technology transfer, innovation in networks, and factors important in entrepreneurial eco-systems. The fourth edition of “Patterns of Entrepreneurship Management” co-authored with Professor Kaplan will be published in 2012.
