Why finesse, not formula, should drive your hiring decisions
Building your biotech team isn’t easy, but it’s central to your value. In fact, Roivant Sciences founder and CEO Vivek Ramaswamy believes people are the most important ingredient for launching a biopharma company. He says the second and third most important, drug assets and money, can’t be marshalled, developed, and managed without your people.
Ramaswamy couldn’t be more qualified to cover the topic. He started Roivant Sciences, parent company to a full 20 biopharma companies with dozens of pre-clinical through phase 3 candidates in their collective pipelines, back in 2014. Spinning them all up so quickly has required a skillful approach to recruiting—and maintaining—the company’s talent pool in a market that competes viciously for limited qualified resources.
