In conjunction with Bayer Taipei G4A Meetup, Ladies Who Tech launched the In Action series in Taipei and invited three speakers to share their journey, experiences, and knowledge in the STEM field. Here is what they had to say:
Celina Chew, President of Bayer Greater China
-You fail. You have to almost fail so many times. That's how you learn. You know what you did wrong and then you do it again. And you do it again and again. (quoted from Ali Boulala)
-With a 150-year history in the life sciences and capabilities across healthcare and agriculture, Bayer is able to see the bigger picture. We feel it is our responsibility to set new benchmarks; to find the courage to begin where others resist; and to drive breakthrough innovation. And we will not do it alone: we will collaborate with the world’s smartest minds in biotech.
Jiayi Lai, CEO of Sigknow Biomedical
-What drives you to today’s achievement? There are many reasons and Jiayi encourages all to let the passion lead you and to believe in yourself.
-Arrhythmia is a prevalent medical condition. In Taiwan, every year there are more than 1 million patients reported with arrhythmia related health issues. Jiayi and her friends founded their first startup company and hope to solve the problem of low diagnosis rate. She Introduced EZYPRO®, first in Asia waterproof patch that records 14-day continuous ECG data, and increases diagnosis rate up to 5 times vs. the current golden standard 24-hr Holter.
-Stay calm and be stronger when faced with challenges.
Karen Twu, Management Director at CMC Management
-Lifetime learning. You are not working for a “job”; you are working for building the career path with passion. Always have a “can do” mindset, and step outside of your comfort zone to gain new experience every single day.
-Karen introduced CDMO business model which serves extended bench to fulfill virtual companies’ dream to develop new pipelines for unmet medical needs, and enables large pharma to become “truly integrated pharmaceutical companies” via outsourcing all development and manufacturing work to move effectively from product concept into first-in-human studies. This is the new wave of win-win business to gain the efficiency and co-share the risks via setting up ecosystem between pharma and CDMO companies.
-Learn from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow
