Quotes

"Not many entrepreneurs have an appreciation for how long-cycle commercialization of intellectual property, particularly as it relates to human or even animal health, requires a kind of long-term commitment and patience."

(13:18) - Jeff Amerine

 

"One reason why we chose Northwest Arkansas was that we wanted to be close to the source of technology, we wanted to continue to work with the university."

(31:20) - Louis Bowen

 

"There's a real skill in being able to take technology out of the lab and turn it into a reality."

(35:01) - Louis Bowen

 

"I probably felt as though I could solve more problems than I could in the investing world. You know, nothing goes in a straight line. There's nothing linear investing in early businesses, early stage businesses."

(40:48) - Louis Bowen
