From Scientist to Entrepreneurial Scientist: The Creation of BioTech Companies

Presented by SGInnovate
Partnered with Entrepreneur First, RECORNEA, St James’s Place Wealth Management

Countless scientists are working on BioTech innovations in research laboratories globally, but how many of these scientists actually take their innovations out of the lab? According to Tech Crunch, BioTech companies were historically built by BioTech venture capital firms who founded and built the companies themselves. However, scientific founders leading the charge for bio companies are becoming the norm these days – scientists have become entrepreneurial scientists.

While the journey to start BioTech companies can be daunting and risky, there are no rewards without risks. In the first of a series of talks, we bring together three BioTech entrepreneurial scientists who have started and lead BioTech companies to share their experiences.
