“So you want to be an entrepreneur . . .”

Chuck Haines, Ph.D., CEO IDBiologics

So you think you want to be an entrepreneur… I am an entrepreneur, an eternal optimist struggling every day against long odds. I am lucky enough to have my dream job! But I also have to do many things that I dread – it comes with the territory. I am constantly rejected, but the rare successes are truly meaningful. If this still sounds interesting, I’m happy to tell you more about my journey from academia to a biotech startup.
