It was in 2013 when I took a leap and established my own company in Pune under the name of Dyna Biotech, a firm established with the vision of providing clients with latest biotech equipment and products used in the manufacturing of
vaccines, antibiotics, and more. During my profession, I also pursued and completed my PhD. from Open International University for Complementary Medicines, SriLanka in 2017. Soon after that, I was awarded with Doctorate of Philosophy in the field of Science and Biotechnology. The self-stimulus to gain the knowledge and experience in the field of Biotechnology gave many logical marvels to our clients and partners.

How would you define your growth over the years? What is your
success mantra? How do you balance work and personal life?
The most apt answer for the question would be ‘Passion'. I always wanted to pursue my zeal for engineering and hence I started my own setup for the manufacturing of fermentors and other Biotech equipment under the banner of Dyna Biotech. Also, I wanted to provide a best in class, premium equipment to the healthcare industry at an affordable price; making the healthcare favourable for one and all.

It was a challenging period and beyond help from any source made evolve us into alternate technologies and build strength in operations.

How do you plan to lead ways for many young aspirants and create career opportunities for them? What would be your advice for them?
I believe in keeping the youth of India inspired since India has this big asset that is to be explored and engaged. Newgen employees are blessed with science and technology since childhood and their grasping power is better. They need to understand the need of time and choose a career very wisely. Since the pandemic, investments have been diverted into life science profession. India is very keen on ‘Make in India’ and stop imports from other countries like China. This has been an excellent opportunity for Indian corporates and startups which is creating a lot of job opportunities for job seekers with passion for the field of biotechnology.

Owing to more and more advancement in the field of biotechnology, the younger generation of today has an opportunity to explore into the depths of biotechnology and make new innovations for the betterment of mankind. With Dyna Biotech, we welcome aspirants to showcase their talent and gain skills in understanding biopharma equipment. We bestow opportunities to learn the knowledge and skill it takes to develop and provide systems required for clients. Dyna Biotech also plans on setting up processes to provide more client suited, customized equipment with the support of newer skills of these youngsters.

For the budding talents, my advice to them, especially for people freshly stepping out of universities and people looking to diversify their skill set would be to keep following their passion and keep up to date with latest news in the fields of their interest. Learning and staying motivated is the key to a knowledgeable mind, leading to personal growth and good career opportunities.
