We are inventors, investors, physicians, philosophers, deal-making attorneys, computer scientists, intellectual property strategists, researchers, painters and self-taught pianists.
We’ve been CEOs, LPs and members of startup boards.
We can write software code. We know how to start from scratch. We know the journey to growth and its hurdles. We know the value of partnerships.
A veteran of the Bio industry, Mirella has managed a corporate venture fund and headed dozens of strategic partnerships for Teva Pharmaceuticals, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies. Serving as an LP in VCs, sitting on startup boards, fostering partnerships with an array of CEOs, and providing legal counsel to life sciences companies, has afforded Mirella an unparalleled outlook on investment, venture management, and company building.
The diversity of her experience and her exposure to the practicalities of growing a variety of Bio companies, are extremely uncommon and invaluable in the field.
Mirella holds an LLB in Law, which she pursued because of her sense of justice and desire to take care of others. Her BSc in Computer Science goes well with her crisp logical thinking. She studied for a MA in philosophy because she’s not one to accept things at face value.
