Christopher Angell is an entrepreneur living in San Diego, CA. He has a BA in Philosophy from Vassar College and an MBA from INSEAD. Some of his past projects include founding cultural NGOs in New York and Johannesburg, producing records and music videos in South Africa, working as an associate producer of a performing arts series at the Guggenheim Museum, and a stint as a strategic advisor for a Russian billionaire.
He founded his latest company, GlucoLift, after being diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 2007. Frustrated with the lack of natural, good-tasting options for treating the low blood sugar episodes so common for people living with diabetes, he created an all-natural chewable glucose tablet that lacked the unpleasant flavor and chalky residues of existing products.
"Lows are horrible, but that doesn't mean that we have to accept a sub-par product just because it raises our blood sugar. We deserve something made from natural ingredients, that tastes great, dissolves clean, and isn't chalky. And that works quickly and reliably. That's why I created GlucoLift All-Natural Glucose. Glucose tablets redesigned, by someone who actually has to use them."
