There are few better suited to advise the leaders of new and emerging biopharma companies on the building blocks of a biotech startup than Allan Shaw. That's why we chose Shaw to help us kick off our Business of Biotech podcast series with an overview of the episodes to come. In addition to his work on the financial front lines of several biotechs, Shaw holds multiple board of director roles with startup biopharma firms, and he advises dozens more in his role as special adviser. On this episode, we'll preview the series and absorb Shaw's to-the-point, practical advice on winning finances, building a pitch, assembling a biotech all-star team, leaving the incubator, navigating early regulatory considerations, and a whole lot more. The Business Of Biotech is produced by BioProcess Online and brought to you with the support of Cytiva, formerly GE Healthcare Life Sciences.
