Pierre Balivet

I’m used to changes: I moved countries twice, first to London then Shanghai before Ihad said a word. The important thing, I learned quickly, is to keep growing as you go: so I sharpened my teeth in London, challenged the world in Lisbon, learnt to experience it in LA and to sprint in NY. I haven’t stopped yet and I’m comfortable with the idea that I won’t anytime soon.

I have big ambitions for Biocol Labs. I started it to continue the legacy of my family, give it my spin and take it into its full potential. It’s been great finding an investor like Shilling who believes in us and that we know that whatever we need, they will proactively push us further. I genuinely think that if Portugal had more Shillings across all sectors, it could truly become unbeatable again. The potential is there and it's infinite. 


Our end goal here is to beat Pfizer - I told you I had big ambitions. We still have a way to go but we’ve already had so many achievements that I’m super proud of:


Our branding was compared to Damien Hirst and exhibited at the salone del mobile. Turning 2K in the bank account into 1 mio in sales annualized, bootstrapped. Being considered the next generation of Airbnb and Google by likes of Forbes, Future Lab and Le Monde. And the romantic in me loves that I got to do all of this with my soulmate.
