One of the key success criteria for any young company is in its ability to establish a network of cross-functional industry experts, which mirrors what larger companies have in house, to help guide the translation of innovative science to breakthrough products. Visterra has benefited significantly from Polaris’ access to this network and most importantly, its proactive commitment to connect us with the right experts at the right time. I believe a large part of Polaris’ success is their focus on matching innovative scientific platforms with experienced and passionate teams. I have experienced this first hand at Momenta and now at Visterra.
