At the February local meeting in Boston, Hertz alumni Mikhail Shapiro and Chris Loose discussed their ventures outside of academia. Chris talked about his experience co-founding Semprus BioSciences, and the diverse skill set he had to pick up on the way as the company grew. Mikhail, a serial entrepreneur himself, gave us a perspective of the venture capital side of the table, discussing his recent experiences at Third Rock Ventures. Everyone also gave updates on recent exciting developments in our respective fields.
