    Orchid Jahanshahi
    Founder, Advisor, Investor, ThinkrBelle

    As a seasoned commercial leader in Pharma & Biotech, I bring a unique cross-expertise between the Life Sciences and Tech/Startup communities. With deep experience in Marketing Management, Sales Management and Global Brand Strategy at six Fortune 500 pharma companies, I helped bring numerous specialty and primary care treatments to healthcare professionals and patients across various therapeutic areas including Neuroscience, Multiple Sclerosis, Cardiovascular, Wound Care, Oncology and Hematology.

    With 25+ years’ experience in Canada and US in Global Portfolio Strategy, Lifecycle Management, Launch Planning, Sales Engagement and Patient Support Programs, I am seen as a globally-minded leader who moves efficiently between strategic and operational business imperatives.

    In 2020, I pivoted my career to the artificial intelligence space at two separate start-ups — to bring the ethical use of AI to healthcare applications (at NuEnergy.AI), and to unleash the power of AI-powered predictive analytics through human-centric pharma tech solutions for the life sciences sector (at ODAIA Intelligence).At ODAIA, I built a strong team of Sales, Operations and Customer Success associates, leading to the 800% YOY growth in only 2 years.

    Through my new venture ThinkrBelle and as Mentor to the CDL biomedical engineering cohort, I am actively engaged in advising and investing in early-stage companies that use AI and tech to advance healthcare solutions to reduce patients’ time to therapy..

    I have a proven eye for organizational talent, having led critical change by nurturing associates’ sense of purpose, while coaching for stellar business targets. As the cross-company Champion for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, I led various educational forums and managerial training at Novartis Canada, and remain deeply committed to DEI as core organizational values.

    I volunteer on the Board of Directors of Kinark Child & Family Services, a leading organization devoted to mental health of children and youth in Ontario, Canada.
