Dr. Jahan Ali Meet & Greet


My name is Jahan Ali and I am excited to join the BioVenture eLab as the new Director. I have met some of you already through the BioVenture eLab programs and am looking forward to meeting and working with all of you to help create a robust entrepreneurial ecosystem here at Weill Cornell Medicine.

Prior to joining here, I founded and led Octane Ventures, a venture catalyst firm that works with nonprofits, universities, and small biotech/ health-tech companies on strategic advice, licensing and operational assistance. I was also a Director of Business Development at International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, where I worked with vaccine and antibody development teams.

I bring a unique perspective to the biotech space, gained from being on multiple sides of early stage technology commercialization, including at Hospital for Special Surgery and leading healthcare investments for the Partnership Fund, an investment fund founded by Henry Kravis. While at the Partnership Fund, I also ran the BioAccelerate program.

I have also mentored numerous early stage companies, through ELabNYC and Springboard Enterprises.
