Jonathan Milner, co-founder of Abcam, offers a masterclass in building successful life science starts-ups, based on his experience with over 40 companies and three Tech IPOs on the London AIM Stock Exchange.

Jonathan will share crucial lessons learned during his many years building successful life science companies, including Abcam and Horizon Discovery. He observes that each company is like a complex dynamic living organism and therefore inherently unique. However, they also have common traits which Founders and Executives of all businesses need to be aware of, if they are to successfully build and scale their firms. This theme will be illustrated with real world ‘Good Bad and Ugly’ stories.

Jonathan cofounded Abcam when working as a postdoctoral researcher studying the newly discovered breast cancer protein BRCA2 in Kouzarides’ Cambridge University laboratory. Now a listed e-commerce company providing antibodies and other protein research tools to a global market, it encourages and publishes product reviews and ratings submitted by customers.

Horizon Discovery designs and engineers genetically modified cells, applying them in research and clinical applications that advance human health.
