It’s never easy to excel in the world of business but that certainly never stopped Marc Beer from attempting to thrive in that field. From an early age, he knew exactly what he wanted to be and that entails becoming a philanthropist, businessman, and entrepreneur. So how has he maintained his enthusiasm throughout his career? Well, he recently sat down to discuss these matters. When he first began his college career, he wasn’t sure what direction he wanted to take it in but soon discovered his affinity for the world of business. He later excelled in his college courses and ended up graduating from the university four years later with his bachelor’s degree in hand. Once he had finished his academic career, he was offered the opportunity to work for Abbott. 

He graciously accepted and spent the next six years working with their sales team to help promote their products and raise their profile. He went on to work for a few other companies after he left that position such as Biostar Inc and Genzyme but, through it all, he never lost sight of his entrepreneurial aspirations. As such, May of 2000 saw him finally becoming his own boss as he opened Viacell, a company dedicated primarily to helping patients by finding as many vaccines and cures as they can. They do this by studying the cells of people who are sick and trying to find a way to reverse engineer those results so they can help remedy these illnesses.

While the company did prove to be a success, it didn’t last too long. No one really knows why but seven years after the company was established, he decided to sell it and move on to his next business venture. However, before he had the chance, tragedy struck home as his wife passed away from a pulmonary embolism. After taking the appropriate amount of time to grieve for his beloved, he decided to stay home with his kids for a while to console them and take care of whatever needs they may have. After a while, however, he realized, with some help from his children, that he needed to return to the business industry and continue his efforts to help people. So that’s exactly what he did. In August of 2016, he started a new business called Renovia.

The goal of this new company is to help as many patients as he can by developing devices that will help treat their conditions. As you might imagine, this new enterprise has turned out to be quite the success and the company is already worth upwards of $50 million with these new products consistently flying off the shelves. In fact, one of their products recently became FDA approved, the first of its kind. In the future, he hopes to expand on his work to reach as many people as he can and he told future generations to always put their philanthropy first, be strategic and focus on the success of the company.
