ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., November 23, 2015 – PaizaBio Founder and CEO Stuart Rose is a featured speaker at the 2015 China National Science and Technology Cooperation Week December 11-13 in Dongguan City, Guandong Province. Rose is the guest of Donguan Innovation Center of Tsinghua University, a prestigious Beijing-based university known for fostering scientific research and innovation and a hotbed for China’s business and political leaders, including the current Chairman of China Xi Jinping.
The seasoned entrepreneur—Rose recently founded PaizaBio to support the manufacture of sterile injectable drugs in China for the Chinese market on behalf of western pharmaceutical companies—will speak on business incubation and investment opportunities in startup companies. These are subjects he knows well; Rose is the CEO and founder of two high-tech incubators in New Mexico, The BioScience Center, focused on biotech startups, and FatPipe ABQ, focused on information technology-related startups. Rose has successfully raised millions in startup capital and had profitable exits, such as the sale of OsoBio, a pharmaceutical contract manufacturing organization in 2014.
While in China, Rose will explore international business incubation collaboration opportunities with Tsinghua’s Dongguan Innovation Center, together with Dr. Yun Li, the president of Yunexus Consulting and a Tsinghua University alumnus.
“I am truly honored to have been invited by Tsinghua University to share their exhibition space and to address the international guests attending the 2015 China National Science and Technology Cooperation Week,” Rose said. “China represents tremendous opportunities for entrepreneurially minded companies such as my own venture, PaizaBio. Having worked with Chinese companies like Ausia BioTech for more than a decade, I have a great deal of respect for the Chinese government, its universities, and its people for embracing collaborative relationships that create opportunities for all parties.”
The event is co-organized by the Ministry of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of China and the People’s Government of Guangdong Province. The summit has been held 11 times since 2004 and is an important platform for conducting international scientific and technology changes and innovation. More than 2,000 projects from over 20 countries have been presented over the last decade.
