Sven Karlsson, Founder & COO of Platelet Biogenesis, joins us to discuss his journey as a biotech founder and his passion for efficient startup operations. We often talk about strategy in big broad strokes, however what is often missed is the actual nuts and bolts required to efficiently and effectively operate an early-stage life science company. In this session, Sven will talk with us about creating a human resources (HR) plan for your company and some of the important processes and procedures you should have in place as you begin to expand your team. We will also look at some of the financial considerations that are tied into HR functions and how to develop an operational plan for hiring and compensating your first employees.
