"Last week, I hosted our CEO, Scott Kobayashi, in Cambridge. As I drove Scott through town, he marveled at the number of startups, academic and industry spin-offs, and facility expansions in the Boston/Cambridge life science landscape. “This feels like the tech industry in Silicon Valley.” Scott had visited Cambridge in the fall of 2017, but the ecosystem had already mushroomed in those 9 months.
Later that Thursday on a humid evening, we attended ISPE’s Summer Social event at the Royal Sonesta in Cambridge. Over drinks and hors d’oeuvres, corn hole, giant-sized Connect Four, and jumbo Jenga, we greeted old friends and made new connections.
The power and momentum of Cambridge’s life science sector was evident in this networking event. Of course our colleagues at the established pharma and biotech firms were present, but there were attendees from companies pivoting to enter the life sciences, new hires who had recently moved from other parts of the country, and freshly formed ventures eager to serve this booming industry.
Delta PM is part of this attraction of new talent and new ventures. Having operated primarily on the West Coast for over 10 years, we opened our Cambridge office this year and are building out our East Coast operations team so that we can bring our expertise and talent to the many life science companies in the Boston/Cambridge biotech hub.
Delta has also been getting more involved in the ISPE Boston chapter, so please say hello and connect with us at the next event. I look forward to meeting even more of you at the ISPE Annual Product Show – see you there!"
