KCR CEO’s Take on Annual MassBio Meeting 2018

Mike Jagielski, CEO of KCR: MassBio (Massachusetts Biotechnology Council) is a great organization committed to advancing leadership in the life sciences to grow the industry. KCR joined MassBio in May last year, after opening our office in Boston.


This year I attended the recent MassBio Annual Meeting 2018, which was my first experience with this gathering. First, I should complement the MassBio for being an incredible community. People often talk about collaboration and sharing information, but MassBio is indeed a leading example for a true meaning of these words. The organization brings together representatives from biotech, academia, investors, government and service providers. All parties bring this incredible sense of commitment to exchange. I think this is unprecedented and this is also the reason for the success of the Cambridge/Boston region in the biotech sector.


When people ask “why did you decide to go to Boston”, my answer is: “Boston and Cambridge are the places where money meets research.” Today, I should add that this is not only the place where money meets research, but more: this is where money meets research with the right spirit to be successful in the complex world of biotech.
