The year that followed the 2019 CambridgeshireLive Business Awards was the last bit of normality that we would have for a while. With the 2020 Awards postponed, the 2019 winners’ reign lasted longer than expected. One champion that grew from strength to strength was Small Business of the Year winner, IONTAS. IONTAS is a biotechnology company that discovers and develops therapeutic antibodies using its own phage display technology, allowing scientists to harness and manipulate antibodies and create drugs that can save lives. In May 2020, IONTAS combined operations with Portugal-based FairJourney Biologics to provide leading services to global biopharma. Not only that, but the company hit a significant milestone last year by entering a licensing agreement with big pharma company, Bristol-Myers Squibb, for their cutting-edge mammalian display technology.

Joe Kirton, IONTAS business developer, mentioned how they immediately joined the effort as it was “important to contribute our knowledge and expertise in antibody discovery.” With the only profit of helping to save lives, they were inspired by FairJourney CEO, António Parada’s motto: “If we can help, then we must help." IONTAS is expanding its facilities in Cambridge Now an international company, IONTAS recognises the importance of being in Cambridge: “It’s very important for us to be the biggest clinical research organisation in antibody discovery and to continue to have a footprint in one of the leading hubs in the world. "At the time we won the award, we occupied 7,000sq ft space in Cambridge. We are now doubling that space to more than 15,000sq ft and hiring scientists, which will allow us to enhance our leading role in the region and to continue facilitating antibody discovery projects using our next generation mammalian display technology.” IONTAS is the perfect example of how the small businesses in our region have boundless potential.
