Since April, Doug Pippin has been as lonely as he has been busy building his trio of startup companies inside a large, nearly 20-year old building last occupied by a division of Johnson & Johnson. As the building’s lone tenant, Pippin has quietly used his small chunk of the 40,000 square-foot building to raise the profile of his fledgling businesses, which aim to serve the biopharmaceuticals industry via research services and technologies.
