A new breed of biotech company is rapidly emerging:
the founder-led biotech.
We believe the best biotech companies of the future will be led by founders. Companies like Ginkgo Bioworks, Asimov, PathAI, and many more are blazing the trail for the next generation.
The Founder-Led Biotech Summit is a free virtual event that brings together leaders from around the globe to drive this movement.
