Learned from a Chief People Officer
Today I had the pleasure of speaking with Abi Bulus, the Chief People Officer of 54Gene, a healthcare startup in the genomics space.

Who: Abi Bulus, Chief People Officer
Company: 54gene
Washington, D.C.
Healthcare startup
Funding: Series B ($44m raised)
Team size: 100+ FTE

What I learned: Abi is leading the people team at 54gene, a fast-growing genomics startup with team members in DC, Nigeria, and remote. I'm really impressed with the number of people Abi has hired in the past 18 months (hint: a lot). They are hiring a good number of molecular scientists and had to figure out an innovative way to do that quickly by building their own training program.
