Rye Brook, NY, October 14, 2020 – Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) is recognizing Curemark’s Founder and CEO Dr. Joan M. Fallon as one of the 100 Most Intriguing Entrepreneurs of 2020 at its Builders + Innovators Summit. Goldman Sachs selected Dr. Fallon as one of 100 entrepreneurs from multiple industries to be honored at the two-day event.
Dr. Fallon became an entrepreneur after many years in pediatric practice. In the course of caring for children with autism, she discovered a potential gut-brain connection that lead to founding Curemark with a goal of creating a drug that could positively impact their lives. Along the way, Curemark raised tens of millions of dollars, has been awarded over 300 patents globally, conducted FDA clinical trials and built a company with an investment valuation in excess of $1B.
The journey has profoundly changed her life. “The struggles of the children with autism and their families compelled me to step away from a private practice that I loved to begin Curemark. For everyone at Curemark, it’s always been all about the kids. No entrepreneur is successful without a fabulous team and at Curemark we have a stellar one,” she said. ”I am deeply honored by this recognition from Goldman Sachs. Their support of entrepreneurs and companies like Curemark is a key part of their success and ours.”
“True innovation is built from a diversity of perspectives and experiences”, said David M. Solomon, Chief Executive Officer of Goldman Sachs. “Our Builders + Innovators Summit brings together a collective of impressive future leaders who are striving to drive meaningful change. For over 150 years, Goldman Sachs has supported entrepreneurs as they launch and grow their businesses. That’s why we are pleased to recognize Joan as one of the most intriguing entrepreneurs of 2020.”
In addition to honoring 100 entrepreneurs, the summit, which this year will take place virtually, consists of general sessions and clinics led by seasoned entrepreneurs, academics and business leaders as well as resident scholars.
