It’s never easy going into the business world and becoming an entrepreneur but that certainly never deterred Marc Beer. The 58-year-old founder and CEO of Renovia have had a lot to contend with in his three-decade career but he has never let adversity get in his way. So how has he managed to get to where he is today? Well, his academic career first begins in the autumn of 1983 when he first matriculated at Miami University and decided to major in business. Four years later, he found himself with a business degree and no idea what he wanted to do until he received a job offer from a company known as Abbott. After working in their sales department for over half a decade, he decided it was time to move on and accepted an offer from Biostar working in their marketing department.
In 1996, he was offered another position at Genzyme where he served as one of their vice presidents in the global advertising department. He stayed with that company for almost five years before realizing he wanted to open his own company and left to do exactly that. In May of 2000, he became the founder and CEO of Viacell. Based out of Cambridge, Massachusetts, the primary the mission of the company is to analyze the genetic makeup of stem cells found in umbilical cords in an effort to uncover any potential cures they may hold. Although the company employed a significant amount of people and went public in 2005, it wasn’t long before they had to sell the business in 2007.
Shortly thereafter, he had to deal with a family tragedy as a pulmonary embolism tragically took the life of his wife, Jennifer, at just 42 and he had to become the sole caregiver of his three children. He spent the next two years attending PTA meetings, helping them with whatever homework they needed and taking care of them whenever they were under the weather. Before long, however, his daughter made him see the truth that the business world still needed his philanthropic passion so he decided to start working on creating a brand new company called Renovia in 2016. Based out of the Boston area, the sole mission of the company entails developing and mass-producing medical products to help patients suffering from various conditions.
