Sep 28 2022

Josh Eckman, CEO of Carterra has been selected as the Ernst  & Young LLP (EY) 2022 Entrepreneur of the Year® Mountain West Award winner, one of the preeminent competitive business awards for entrepreneurs and leaders of high-growth companies. An independent panel of judges selected Mr. Eckman based on his entrepreneurial spirit, purpose, growth, and impact, among other core contributions and attributes.

Mr. Eckman is a co-founder of Carterra, a leader in label-free, high-throughput biotherapeutic discovery and characterisation technology. Its flagship LSA platform launched in 2018 utilisinging high-throughput Surface Plasmon Resonance (HT-SPR) technology became standard in 17 of the largest 20 pharmaceutical companies, biotechs, CROs, and government labs. As a graduate at the University of Utah he identified the market opportunity, developed the business plan and advanced the technologies which were central to Carterra’s formation and the launch of its LSA platform. In 2020, Eli Lilly and Abcellera discovered Bamlanivimab, the world’s first COVID-19 therapeutic, using the LSA platform in a 90-day sprint.

“At Carterra we are passionate about providing innovative technologies to scientists who are developing life-saving therapies,” said Mr. Eckman.  “Our platform levels the playing field between small startups and large organisations and enables months of work to be completed in days.  We believe this will spur innovation and competition, which should ultimately impact the pricing and global availability of these amazing biotherapeutics.  We are honoured that Ernst and Young has selected us for the Entrepreneur of the Year award.  For over 35 years, they have recognised audacious, game-changing business leaders and entrepreneurs who disrupted industries and created new product categories.  We are humbled to be a part of this rich legacy.”

Mr. Eckman will now be considered for the 2022 Entrepreneur of the Year National Awards.
