Many people out there understand how difficult it can be to make it in the business industry but no one has realized this more than Marc Beer. The 48-year-old businessman, entrepreneur, and father
of three recently sat down to discuss how he has become such a huge success throughout his three-decade career. As a freshman at Miami University, he quickly developed an affinity for business
which is what he decided to major in. After graduating in 1987 with a bachelor of science in business degree, he ended up accepting a job offer as a member of the sales department at a business called Abbott. This went on for over half a decade before receiving an offer to become a corporate officer at a business known as Biostar Inc where he worked for two years.
After leaving the role, he decided to work for Genzyme as their new vice president of global marketing. After four years of serving in this position, he finally realized he was ready to successfully run his own company which first opened in May of 2000. Based out of Cambridge, the company is committed to uncovering as many vaccines and cures as they can possibly find by examining the stem cells from umbilical cords. They search these cells for various biomarkers to see if there are any medical breakthroughs in there.
They went public in 2005 before selling off the company two years later but at one point they had upwards of 500 employees. After the sale had been finalized, he was all set to move on to his next business endeavor but, before he was able to, his wife passed on due to a pulmonary embolism. Once the mourning period concluded, he took on a more central position in the lives of his children, driving them to and from school and helping them out with homework as per necessary. Pretty soon, however, his daughter convinced him that he needed to return to the business world and resume helping people.
As such, he became the co-founder, chairman and CEO of Renovia in August of 2016. Based out of Boston, the company is dedicated to developing medical products for patients in need and delivering it to
them so they can treat their conditions. He then provided advice to future entrepreneurs. He told them to always follows their dreams, focus on giving back to those in need and always put
the needs of the company before anything else. Pelvic floor disorders affect a significant portion of the female population which is exactly why they are currently working on developing a treatment
for them. They are particularly proud of the grant they received which is $42 million.
