“I met Antoine when he was Student Body President and an International Business student, immediately extending an offer for an internship because I was so impressed. He explored biotechnology incubators, brought together elected officials from across the State of Maryland, and engaged with constituents from both sides of the political aisle. He has a thorough understanding of the relationship between business and government, and he is well equipped with the tools to navigate the influence and impact of governmental policies, programs, and regulations on the private sector.”

— John K. Delaney, CEO of Revolution Accelerator Acquisition Corp, former U.S. Congressman, and former U.S. Presidential Candidate
