In 2017, Yash Sabharwal and Ryan Shillington started CherryCircle Software and the QbDVision project to address the lack of digital maturity in pharma and biotech manufacturing. After releasing the beta version in early 2018, they recruited industry veterans with over 100 years of collective experience in the areas of process development, pharmaceutical quality, and regulatory compliance to refine the product and provide thought leadership. Today, the QbDVision solution is being used by multiple companies in multiple continents and multiple countries to bring digital maturity to their manufacturing and operation and to transform knowledge and risk management for the latest therapies.
