Adina has twice been a speaker at the GapSummit and a mentor for the Voices of Tomorrow Competition.
We were fortunate to get some time to catch up with Adina and get her thoughts on the GapSummit, careers and career development in biotech, and being a young biotech entrepreneur. This is part one of our Q&A.
You’ve been a speaker, panellist and a mentor at the GapSummit. Both of them. At this year’s summit, what was your personal highlight?
Adina: That’s a good question. I personally really enjoyed the pitches this year a lot. I thought that they were really great. The teams did extremely well this year and I think it’s in large part because they had more time to prepare. That’s made a huge difference in their ability to really deliver things clearly, to have really creative ideas that they had done a lot of research on. The quality of the pitches was really solid and the idea diversity was really great too.
