Paragon Biosciences is one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical investment companies. Paragon Biosciences incubates and helps grow companies that invent cures and treatments for diseases that do not have cure yet. There are over 6000 illnesses around the world that are believed to be untreatable. Paragon Biosciences believes that with the right people on the job, it is possible to find cures to these diseases.
What makes Paragon Biosciences successful is the strategy they have chosen. Instead of building companies that try to cure diseases, they build companies that try to understand the cause and behavior of diseases. In doing this, Paragon Biosciences has managed to build companies that create the best treatments there are in the market. In understanding the disease, these companies have also been able to assist medical doctors in understanding what ails their patients. Since these companies are focused on specific diseases, they have been able to reduce the number of untreatable diseases in the world.
Jeff Aronin inspires every business owner who walks into Paragon Biosciences to care about their clients more than meeting the bottom line. Pharmaceutical companies that seek to make profit will stop at the cure that makes them money. A pharmaceutical company that cares about its clients on the other hand keeps searching for ways to make their clients live longer and healthier. This is the principle Jeff Aronin built Paragon Biosciences on and it’s what propels them to build up more companies that will do the same.
Jeff Aronin has maintained the position of CEO of Paragon Biosciences since 2010. He is also chairman of various Paragon portfolio companies such as Castle Creek and Harmony Biosciences. Before coming to Paragon Biosciences, Jeff Aronin worked as the CEO of Ovation Pharmaceuticals Inc. for nine years. As CEO of both companies, his colleagues looked up to him as a mentor. Not only because of his position but because he has a way of inspiring people around him to be their best. This has been his strength in working with companies that are just coming up.
Other than his leadership skills, Jeff Aronin has experience in structuring and executing strategic corporate transactions including mergers and acquisitions. This has been key in ensuring that all companies they invest in are stable.
