Dimitri Pappaioannou, MSc Commercial Director

Dimitri has a background in Molecular Biology. He completed his masters at Leiden University, where he subsequently worked as a research scientist. After several years he switched from academia to the biotechnology industry as he became increasingly more interested in turning scientific discoveries into innovations that make a real impact on healthcare. Altogether he 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 Dimitri was Director of Marketing at MIMETAS and consultant for life sciences companies.

Dimitri's passion lies within working with- and managing international teams of Product Managers, Business Developers and (Sales) Consultants. His hands-on experience with the challenges associated with life-sciences innovation as well as his knowledge on how smart strategies can transform good ideas into disruptive innovations make him an inspirator for everybody at ttopstart.
