Katrine Bosely, Former CEO of Avila Therapeutics, a recently exited portfolio company
The skills and experience of the Abingworth team reach across all stages of company building and value creation. At Avila, they incubated the company early on - our first office was the spare conference room at Abingworth - and the extended Abingworth team supported us on the science, on later-stage capital sources, on connecting with senior pharmaceutical executives, and on driving the visibility of the Avila story. As CEO, I knew there was a deep and varied spectrum of resources that I could (and did) tap into on a regular basis. That made a big difference in our trajectory and success.
