Bisa Peterson is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Microton Incorporated. She is a native of Eufaula, Alabama. Born March 22, 1993. She was quite an exceptional child, with knowledge in multiple forms of code and software by age eight and versed in three languages at the age of 12. Ms. Peterson studied diligently throughout her young years immersing herself in scientific research. She is a very diverse person avid about foreign cultures, history, and operatic music. Ms. Peterson is a very learned person due to exceptional teachers, her science teacher Mrs. Manderson in elementary school. Her history professor Mr. Culberson in middle-school. As well as her Spanish tutor who wishes to remain (anonymous). After the 7th grade, Bisa became homeschooled through the Community Fellowship School in Opelika, AL. By Ms. Evergreen Freeman and her mother Mrs. Delores Peterson who laid down the path of her foundation in academia.
In the summer of 2009 she began researching a way to bring everything learned over the course of her life into a coalition for the betterment and innovation of the scientific community. After two years of arduous work she graduated with a 4.9 GPA at seventeen, her homeschool proposed that she was ready for college. It was from this point on that Ms., Peterson began to pile her achievements in hopes of making a good impression on superiors. Thus proving that in spite of her age, she was ready to start work and college. Bisa would go on to major in physics and mechanical engineering at the University of Southern Mississippi.
After an email to a company (Noetic Technologies). Bisa was contracted to design thirty-six technologies for the polymer science company. She moved to Hattiesburg, Mississippi in hopes to start her technology company once she completed the work for Noetic Technologies. The partnership turned out to be detrimental, due to Noetic Technologies insisting on giving credit to people who never taught Bisa. As well as, the diagnosis of epilepsy and an unfortunate fall that caused memory loss up to 45%. During this time, Bisa was designing the first curved bullet, based on an idea at the age of 12.
However, for a few weeks everything went well, and she had the opportunity to research alongside a leading scientist at the NASA. She returned to Southern Mississippi the following year to continue her studies, Ms. Peterson also worked under the guidance of the Chairman of the Physics Department Khin Maung to help her graduate early and design technology in her name. She continued her work at NASA as an intern and relinquished all ties with Noetic Technologies.
Ms. Peterson designed several defense concept technologies between the years 2012-2013 at the University. Her friend Walter Eskridge, created her technology on AutoCAD and she worked with Lawrence Mack to establish a private club on campus to brainstorm innovative ideas to help solve world problems. During her time in Mississippi, she worked with Sgt. Hoover to develop her technology for defense purposes. Shortly, afterwards she was injured and began to suffer from severe seizures, partial paralysis, and migraines. Bisa battled the very worse of this disease, and she made a full recovery finally in 2016. With the help of herbal teas, Vimpat, and rapid exercise as well as a healthy diet and support system. Additionally, she worked with a Master-Guns man to begin building the weapons for defense applications. Year 2014 shw designed her curve bullet and shortly after she started working on a sonic device for the USDA and Jager Pro to eradicate feral hogs.
After, a disagreement with a private company, Bisa decided to start a business. Ms. Peterson decided to seek advisement from startup incubator (Techstars) in London and the Roundhouse in Opelika, AL. Now she has a startup with her co-founder, and they are leading a diverse team and she is determined to make her mark in the world, Bisa focused on solving problems for the military sector, but she realized the actual problems were in everyday life. She thought of famine, disease, crop growth, polluted waters, and illnesses that plagued the world. For her, that was a realization, it is better to solve problems to avoid conflict then to add to conflict by making things to cause even greater harm to the world. For these reasons she has chosen to start a diverse and innovative biotechnology focused company.
“I gave myself a new mission in life, to prove that the impossible can be made possible with determination and support.”-Bisa Peterson
