We are glad to share that Celia Lerman has been named mentor of Incubando Salud.
Incubando Salud from the Fundación Barceló in Buenos Aires, is a pioneer in the field of health and life sciences in Latin America, stimulating the much-needed interconnectedness between the worlds of health and business. One of the main goals of Incubando Salud is improving the quality of life and addressing people’s needs adequately. As far as the areas of expertise are concerned, they include diagnosis, therapies, medical devices, personal medicine, as well as complex, innovative matters, such as artificial intelligence and virtual reality.
Incubando Salud brings together teachers, scientists, university students, health professionals, as well as business people on a global level in order to create an integrative environment of shared knowledge, experience, and tools from different areas. Moreover, it is their mission to boost the entrepreneurial spirit amongst the experts in their team, releasing their full potential and taking the process of creation of technological innovations in health on a whole new level.
Celia’s addition to Incubando Salud builds on both Celia’s and on Lerman & Szlak’s core strengths. One of Lerman & Szlak’s verticals, Startup Services, is one of Celia’s area of expertise, having worked as counsel to 60+ startups in both Silicon Valley and Buenos Aires.
“I’m excited to be offered this opportunity,” Celia reported. “Incubando Salud’s stellar reputation in the Latin American biotech startup world speaks for itself, and I’m honored to help contribute to the mission of improving health technology. The legal aspect of biotech startup strategies often becomes very complex very quickly, but too many Latin American health startups don’t pay attention to their legal strategy when they need to most, as they develop their product and their market.”
Celia Lerman is a lawyer (Universidad Torcuato Di Tella – UTDT, Valedictorian), Intellectual Property LLM (Universidad Austral, with honors) and Master of Science of Law (JSM, Stanford University). One of her predominant specialties entails designing and executing transnational IP protection strategies, contracts, and confidentiality agreements.
