The Biotechnology industry develops discoveries
and inventions in the life sciences into products and services.
Often this is done through a ‘start-up’, a new company created to exploit one idea or product or technology. Usually these fail, which is a downer for everyone involved.
I have been working for nearly 30 years with biotech start-ups. Some of my own creation, many based around the science or business acumen of others, I have been working to find what the application is for the founding science, how it can be exploited, and (most critically) how it can be financed.
These pages describe some of the projects I am currently involved in, and the result of quite a lot of research into why this start-up process, so full of promise, so often goes wrong.
