Dr. Adrienne Leussa is one of my favorite follows. If the booming biotech scene on an incredibly diverse continent of 1.2 billion people interests you, she should be one of your faves, too. Dr. Leussa's intellect, energy, and glowing spirit contribute to her ambassadorship of the African biotech scene. She's an entrepreneur, a visionary, a communicator, and a tireless advocate for African biotech opportunity. On today's epsiode of the Business of Biotech, we share a lot of laughs as we learn how Adrienne's entrepreneurial beginnings selling nuts and lollies on the streets of Yaounde, Cameroon set the foundation for an accelerated academic career and a passion for bio business development. We also dive into Africa's growing biotech scene, discussing the support infrastructure available for budding entrepreneurs and the importance of technology transfer and commercial research innovations from local universities.
