‘Own the Room’ review: Pitching the future

Young entrepreneurs vie for the top spot in a global competition that recognizes world-changing ideas.


This review of the National Geographic film "Own the Room" spotlights Daniela Blanco, who earned a Ph.D. in chemical and biomolecular engineering last year, and is featured in the documentary "Own the Room" for her work with collaborators Myriam Sbeiti (B.S., '18) and Professor Miguel Modestino in developing a sustainable route to manufacturing Nylon without fossil fuels, which lead to Blanco and Sbieti founding the sustainable chemistry startup "Sunthetics."
