Today, April 29, 2011, Grove Ridge Consulting’s President, Gloria Rood attended a Life Science Alley Member Breakfast with Vickie O’Neill, President of Orchard Pharma. The breakfast was at the Risdall Marketing Building in New Brighton, MN. For a change, the weather was warm with sunny skies. It appears that we are heading toward our one month of summer!!!
Life Science Alley, in conjunction with the BioBusiness Alliance of Minnesota are key Minnesota non-profit organizations committed to invest and grow Life Science commerce in and around Minnesota. Minnesota has the largest per capita number of Medical Device employees. Because of this, maintenance and growth of this industry is critical to the Minnesotan economy.
The breakfast was well attended by representatives from a diverse profile of LifeScience professionals. Attendees included:
- Medical Device
- Veterinary products
Ms. O’Neill and I support pharmaceutical and biotech development. There are few traditional pharmaceutical companies in the Twin Cities area (metro Minneapolis/St. Paul). We are committed to learning what needs the MN biotech industry requires and how we can fill those gaps.
Grove Ridge Consulting supports traditional small molecule R&D of topical, transdermal and oral solid prescription formulations and project management.
Orchard Pharma specializes in global business development, strategic business licensing and aquisitions.
