New York: How New York is Creating a Next-Generation of Lfe Science Executives  
Presented by the Columbia Business School Alumni Club of New York
Thursday, May 4, 2017 from 6:00 - 8:30 p.m. 
Grand Central Tech, 335 Madison Avenue, New York, New York 

Cost: $30.00 for CBSACNY Members; $15 for CBSACNY student members; $45.00 for Non-Members

On Thursday, May 4, a panel of distinguished New Yorkers led by Bunny Ellerin, the new director of CBS’ healthcare management program, will discuss executive skills needed to shape the next generation of life sciences companies in NYC and CBS’ role in filling the talent gap. The panel will highlight how new public-private sector initiatives are propelling the city, after years of struggling, into becoming one of the nation’s top life sciences clusters, and CBS’ engagement in these efforts.

After years of playing catch-up, the New York metropolitan region is attracting unprecedented interest from venture capitalists, pharmaceutical companies, real estate developers and leading life sciences entrepreneurs. A serious industry cluster is finally emerging. However, New York is still not on par with famously established centers. In 2016, a high-profile report by The Partnership Fund for NYC listed four urgent areas of need for investment in the region, including more entrepreneurial talent. Its publication has been followed in 2017 with exciting, new public-private initiatives.

An engaged and robust core of experienced and entrepreneurial management talent is vital for NYC’s life sciences ecosystem, and also to the health of NY’s academic institutions, which are so symbiotic. Columbia faculty has combined scientific and business talents to lead the way in founding companies based on discoveries from their labs, such as Claros Diagnostics, now Opko Diagnostics, EpiBone, Kallyope Pharma, and even newer companies like Applied Therapeutics, which just closed a Series A round backed by Alexandria Venture Investments and other VCs. But it’s only a start. This panel will address the gaps as well as opportunities and potential solutions for filling the entrepreneurial gap in NY.
