Hi, I’m Dimitri.
Nice to meet you!
I am the Commercial Director of ttopstart. In this capacity I enjoy interacting with customers to build lasting relationships to ensure our team of consultants can leverage what they do best for our clients – co-create meaningful solutions that have impact on life science and society.
I have a background in Molecular Biology. I completed my masters at Leiden University, where I subsequently worked as a research scientist. After several years I switched from academia to the biotechnology industry as I became increasingly more interested in turning scientific discoveries into innovations that make a real impact on healthcare.
Altogether I gained over 15 years of biotech experience in business development, product- and marketing management at, amongst others, Invitrogen, Leica Biosystems and DiscoverX. Before joining ttopstart I was Director of Marketing at MIMETAS and consultant for life sciences companies.
My passion lies within working with- and managing international teams of Product Managers, Business Developers and (Sales) Consultants. With my hands-on experience with the challenges associated with life-sciences innovation as well as my knowledge on how smart strategies can transform good ideas into disruptive innovations I hope to inspire others.
Getting the best idea or developing the most brilliant innovation is not enough to make or have an impact on people’s life or society. To make impact, smart and to the point strategies are needed to transform great ideas into disruptive innovations. This is where we as ttopstart want to – and can – contribute.
