    Starting Up to Scaling Up: A Fireside Chat with Kymanox Founder Stephen Perry

    Join Stephen Perry, CEO of the fast-growing life science solutions company, Kymanox, in a wide-ranging conversation with LaunchBio CEO, Joan Siefert Rose, about starting a company, building a team, and positioning a company for growth. Kymanox has consistently achieved record-breaking annual growth since the company relocated its headquarters to RTP in 2008 with the goal of helping drug, biologic, and medical device companies GET MORE DONE! Stephen Perry was a big hit at Larger Than Life Science earlier this year when he revealed how to be paid what you’re worth. Join us to hear more insights on starting and growing a company within the life sciences industry, such as how he manages to his energy level – not his time – and thinks about maintaining the essentials of the company’s culture as he recruits new talent and expands to new markets.

    Partnering for Peak Performance: How to Form a Lasting Business Alliance

    KBI Biopharma is one of North Carolina’s life sciences success stories. The Global Contract Development and Manufacturing Organization (CDMO) serves more than 300 clients to accelerate their drug development programs by delivering process development and FDA compliant manufacturing services. When KBI was looking for a bioreactor to ensure consistent quality and productivity in cell growth, the company selected Sartorius’ ambr™ system. But that was just the beginning of the relationship. The companies have found opportunities to use ambr™ as a tool for their customers to gather more data in a cost-efficient way and improve time to market. We’ll hear from the people on the front lines of this working partnership how the 2 companies build trust, find common ground in helping clients, and work side by side to continually improve their products and service delivery.
