The founders of CanBiotech from institutions including M.I.T, Harvard, Brown, McGill, University of Waterloo and University of Toronto, aim to create a central hub for the biotech industry through its portals and marketplaces, with equal, yet distinct representation of each of the following sectors: therapeutics/biopharmaceuticals, agrifood, devices/diagnostics.
The founders of CanBiotech bring over 13 years experience in molecular biology, cancer biology, gene therapy, drug delivery, ag-biotechnology, bio-IT, biotech business development, software and web development from various arenas including the biopharmaceutical industry, the agbiotech industry, the financial industry and the public sector.
CanBiotech, a private venture, is a company whose central premise is forming partnerships and creating synergies with a focus on the outsourcing of biotech research and business services through CanBiotechs online marketplaces or through CanBiotechs physical arm: CanBiotech Consulting. The goal is to enhance the biotech industry, enabling a new process of discovery and development, with an equal opportunity provided to all players, by fostering both cross-border interactivity between Canadian and U.S. biotechnology companies as well as provide for international partnering opportunities for the biotechnology industry.
