PA Biotech Center Companies Showcased to Potential Investors at Second Annual Entrepreneur Spotlight
Baruch S. Blumberg Institute hosts Shark Tank-style event at the Pennsylvania Biotech Center, honors Barbara Schilberg, CEO of BioAdvance DOYLESTOWN, Pa. (July 2016)  The Baruch S. Blumberg Institute recently hosted its second annual Entrepreneur Spotlight with a Shark Tank-style program and awards ceremony at the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center of Bucks County. In attendance were pharma and biotech business movers and shakers celebrating the contributions of biotechnology and pharmacology to the quality of life in the Bucks County area. The evening began with presentations from five start-up companies located at the PA Biotech Center. The companies ranged from those in very early stage development to one company with a medical device already approved and being sold as a commercial product. Company leaders pitched their technologies to angel investors who could help make their ground-breaking medical therapies a reality. The discussion was facilitated by an expert panel led by Barbara Schilberg, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of BioAdvance; Patrick Higgins, co-founder and former Chief Executive Officer of OnCore Biopharma; and Elizabeth D. Sigety, Esq., Partner with Fox Rothschild LLP in Warrington, PA. Sigety received the Blumberg Institutes inaugural Entrepreneur Champion Award along with Fox Rothschild colleagues Loren Danzis and Jeff Nichols in 2015. The Blumberg Institutes 2016 Entrepreneur Champion Award was presented to Schilberg, who leads BioAdvance, which provides early stage capital and other support to companies developing technologies to improve human health. This honor, which recognizes those who have made extraordinary contributions to advancing biotech entrepreneurship in the region, was presented by Dr. Patrick Lam, who serves as Chair of the Entrepreneur Council at the PA Biotech Center. Dr. Lam is a former medicinal chemist with Bristol-Myers Squibb with a total of eight clinical candidates to his name and was the co-inventor of Eliquis®/Apixaban, a very successful blood thinner used to prevent clots and strokes. BioAdvance has stimulated the creation and development of new ideas into innovative entrepreneurial entities, said Dr. Timothy M. Block, president of the Baruch S. Blumberg Institute and the Pennsylvania Biotechnology Center. Barbaras investment, not just in capital but in time spent nurturing young biotech companies, helps countless entrepreneurs move science from the laboratory into successful, industry-changing businesses. Schilberg has more than 30 years of experience working with academic technologies and start-up companies in the life sciences sector. Under her leadership as CEO, BioAdvance has invested $32 million in 73 companies and academic technologies focusing on areas including Alzheimers disease, cancer, diabetes, obesity and infectious diseases. During Schilbergs tenure with BioAdvance, portfolio companies have attracted more than $2.4 billion in capital, 11 companies have been acquired and nine products have been approved by the FDA.
