Bio

Kavitha is a serial entrepreneur who has co-founded two biotech companies, was the only one of seven women who made it to ‘Fortune India’s’ ‘40 under 40’ 2014 list. And that’s just professional success. She has been dynamic on the personal front as well. She has run multiple marathons, is an amateur painter, acted in plays, and displays many other talents.

After acquiring her Master’s degree, Kavitha went straight to work at Biocon, which gave her hands-on experience of working with a global biotech major. After Biocon, she followed it up with stints at Millipore India, where she gained valuable experience not only in R&D but in project management and process development.

Post that, she joined as project manager with a cross-functionality in business development at Avesthagen. While there, she completed a working MBA from IIM Bangalore, which gave her an understanding of how to run a business. This was the time when she and her colleague Sohang Chatterjee, saw an opportunity with process development in biologics and decided to launch an entrepreneurial venture; Inbiopro Solutions Pvt Ltd. Later in 2012 Kavitha and Sohang co-founded Zumutor Biologics Pvt Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Zumutor Biologics. Together with its affiliate company, Theramyt Novobiologics, Zumutor is developing two complementary technology platforms to produce Glycoengineered therapeutic monoclonal antibodies along with novel display platforms which will foray into the realm of new biologics.
