Alex Neagu, PhD Consultant

Alex Neagu graduated with an MSc in Molecular Medicine from Erasmus University, for which he received an award from the Royal Dutch Academy of Sciences (KNAW). He continued with a PhD at the same university, for which he wrapped up the experimental work in 2015. There, he studied how Embryonic Stem Cell pluripotency is maintained. In doing so, Alex identified a novel pluripotent stem cell type. After, he decided to change scenery and get hands-on experience on science based business at one of the biggest venture capital funds in the Netherlands, where he was involved in the due diligence of over 50 companies, gaining valuable insight into fundraising. Now, at ttopstart, Alex is looking forward to translating his experience to new ventures looking for strategic advice.
