The pharmaceutical industry is brimming with innovation – from biologics such as cell and gene therapies to COVID-19 treatments and precision oncology drugs. And as pharmaceuticals grow more advanced, so too must the drug delivery and packaging solutions that get them safely from the manufacturer to the patient.

This is a competitive arena and among all the companies operating in this space, startups are generally seen as the drivers of innovation, often taking high-risk approaches and doing business with greater agility.

In this episode, CPHI is joined by Gareth Pearce, founder of Pacifi Ltd, a startup that modifies glass vials with laser technology to create DuoVIAL, an innovative lyophilized drug delivery solution. Gareth takes us through his company’s journey, explains his long-term vision and speaks more broadly about the role events can play in a startup’s path to success.
