Michael Salgaller, editor of Biotechnology Entrepreneurship: From Science to Solutions will be signing copies of his book at the BIO bookstore on Monday from 11:30-1pm.
Biotechnology Entrepreneurship: From Science to Solutions fills a critical gap in the biotechnology industry. For all the resources on how to start companies and on how to manage established companies in other sectors, there is a dearth of material on unique and critical issues in starting biotechnology companies, as well as managing the transition from start-up to established company. It is to this gap that Biotechnology Entrepreneurship is directed.
Topics covered include:
- Why Start a Biotechnology Company?
- Company Formation and Organization
- Building Your Team
- Intellectual Property Protection Strategy
- Financing Your Company
- Partnering With Industry
- Licensing and Technology Transfer
- Regulatory Affairs
- Roadmap to Reimbursement and Access
- Working Toward a Successful Exit
- Effective Networking
By combining the voices of a diverse set of industry insiders with extensive experience in biotechnology commercialization, Biotechnology Entrepreneurship prepares nascent founders, managers, investors, and other biotechnology company stakeholders to position themselves and their companies for commercial success.
