Ep87: Bob Nelsen of ARCH Venture Partners on Biotech Investing
Nelson is the co founder and managing director of arch venture partners. He's one of the most prolific and successful venture capitalists in biotech history. Bob likes to get involved in startups in the very early days. He's willing to stick his neck out and do things that might seem weird or premature to most people at the time. He was an early investor in gene sequencing technology with alumina. Aren't interference without milem cell therapy with juno and infectious disease with fear dreams. Big things ahead of the pack and isn't afraid to take risk. I've interviewed bob too many times to count over the past twenty years. He was one of the first people. I met when starting out covering biotech in the seattle times. He was getting established at arch.
