Biotech Entrepreneurship: How to Succeed Faster

Paul Lem - Entrepreneur

Good friend and fellow entrepreneur, Paul Lem, is always doing things “faster” and “better.” If you don’t know Dr. Lem, he is CEO & Founder of Spartan Bioscience, a local startup that has produced the World’s First Personal DNA Analyzer. Impressive? yes. Well, Paul, will be speaking at the University of Ottawa on Nov. 18th about “how to succeed faster.” If you’re interested in attending this breakfast, check out the link from uOttawa here: Biotech Entrepreneurship: How to Succeed Faster.

If you can’t make the event, fear not, Paul also has a new book called “Master Life Faster” that he has been working on for the past 5 years. I’ve begun reading the book and it is definitely a valuable read. You can read samples from the book for free on the website.
