Polsky Overview for Chicago Booth Evening/Weekend Program Students

Join the Polsky Center during the lunch break for an info session and founder talk. Polsky staff from the student programs team and the Deep Tech Ventures team will present on ways to engage with Polsky programs for the first half of the event.

The second half will feature Ryan Meyers MBA ’23. Ryan cofounded two biotech startups during his time at Chicago Booth: AddGraft Therapeutics, a cell therapy platform that genetically modifies skin into a bioengine for long-term protein delivery, and Alnair Therapeutics, a precision oncology startup creating novel drug delivery systems that protect cancer drugs from exposure to healthy tissue. An enormously impressive feat for any individual, Meyers also led both startups through a myriad of competitive Polsky programs, including the Compass deep tech accelerator, Polsky I-Corps, the George Shultz Innovation Fund, and the 2023 Edward L. Kaplan, ’71, New Venture Challenge (NVC) — where Alnair took home the Rattan L. Khosa First Prize and $585,000.
