Karlin has moved the needle in Research Triangle Park (RTP) and we’re very appreciative for their investment, their enthusiasm, their creativity, and their support of the community. They’re just a terrific group to work with.
What we’re finding is that students at these universities, their first choice is to stay local. And the companies are clearly very interested in the talent that was coming out of our local universities. Partners like Karlin really walk the walk and support initiatives that help our community, our society address societal problems.
Karlin was an early adopter. Karlin changed perceptions for companies about RTP at the moment that institutional capital and other companies were considering North Carolina.
Their timing was impeccable, and they attracted what is sometimes rare in the biotech market. They have been terrific partners. When we call on them, they step up.
