Mr Tony Jose, CEO & co-founder of Clevergene Biocorp was in his office working on his iMac, when I went to meet him.
"I was working in a start-up genomics services company back then," started Mr Jose as we sat together. I gave up a job offer to pursue PhD at the University of Texas, in order to pursue my entrepreneurial passion, he said. "I began there as a scientist and as well as a commercial business developer. I had multiple roles to play. There was a lot happening in the forefront of genomics. That gave me the confidence and inspired me to push my limits to start Clevergene."
