Forbes magazine recognises Kymab's work is 'exciting the big and little guys' and places the company in a select group of UK 'Unicorns'

Kymab is pleased to report that in an article first published on 31 July 2018 Forbes magazine highlighted Kymab as a UK Company that could be a Unicorn in 2019. According to Forbes "Unicorn status (a billion dollar valuation) is the north-star for a lot of startups for different reasons but it is not easy."

The Forbes report says that Kymab "is exciting the big and little guys thanks to its genetic work".

Dr David Chiswell, CEO of Kymab, said: "We are delighted that Forbes recognizes the strength of our pipeline and of our business plan. Our fully human antibodies enable us to create therapeutics and vaccines for some of our most difficult-to-treat diseases."

The report notes that "there are 258 unicorns at the moment … the majority reside in the US and China; but few countries other than the U.K. and India make double digits".
