CEO and Founder Kyle Abbott launched Venture Forward Partners to meet the rising demand for operational support among life science organizations, and for trustworthy guidance in lab design, relocation management and site establishment, and operations. Kyle combines deep expertise — in laboratory, facility, and construction management, company relocations and equipment procurement, and environmental health and safety — with a passion for entrepreneurship and growth. An insider in the field, he’s certified in numerous facets of operations, safety protocols and materials handling from OSHA and DOT. He has years of experience — in everything from day-to-day management to EH&S policies, from waste streams to inventory control, from supply chain solutions to staffing.
Prior to founding Venture Forward Partners he was Senior Operations Manager at Juno Therapeutics, where he was instrumental in the design and construction of their new facility. His innovative approach forged a working bridge between the construction and scientific teams, enabling a cost-effective, science-centric outcome, optimal workflow, and maximum results.
At VFP, Kyle has handpicked a top team of experts and young talent to address every challenge for biotech and life sciences clients. “Nothing excites me more than meeting all the great individuals that make up this industry and bringing a winning concept to life,” he said.
