This book is aimed at providing a large audience, including practitioners, politicians and decision-makers, with useful insights in relation to innovation and entrepreneurship in the biotechnology industry. It offers an international perspective and a set of theoretical lenses to underline the roles and the effects of entrepreneurship and scientific innovation as key factors to support new firm emergence and to achieve and maintain competitiveness in this so important industry. Alain Fayolle, EM Lyon, CERAG Laboratory, France and Solvay Business School, Belgium The biotechnology industry across the globe is growing dramatically in line with rapidly emerging scientific and technological developments. This book explores both the theoretical and practical aspects of entrepreneurship in the biotechnology industry, focusing on the innovation processes underpinning success for new biotechnology firms (NBFs). It argues that biotechnology is at a crossroads: to date the science has been solid, yet commercial success remains elusive, and that it will be the commercial success of NBFs which will dictate the long term viability of this crucial industry. The authors go on to examine the roles played by both entrepreneurship and innovation in the competitiveness of biotechnology companies through a focus on: intellectual property strategies, product development, valuing biotechnology ventures, funding innovation and R&D, alliances and networking, changing industry structures evidenced through the shifting value chain and the impact of globalization on the changing industry and organizational life cycles. International case studies with a focus on human biosciences support the important theoretical developments at the heart of this book. Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biotechnology offers original and valuable insights to researchers, academics and students as well as to practitioners involved with innovation and entrepreneurship in the field of biotechnology.

Research and development of novel medicines for human therapy commonly takes over a decade before significant revenues from sales are forthcoming. How can biotechnology companies be founded and grow successfully in an industry with such extended innovation processes? The book investigates this problem and distinguishes three growth phases: From incorporation and start-up through collaborative R&D with large pharmaceutical firms to value creation from R&D pipelines to Public Offerings and product marketing. In this book a dynamic simulation model for testing different decision-making strategies is developed. For each phase the author identifies decision rules that provide for successful corporate growth.

This book is intended for students in the biotechnology sector at the undergraduate and post-graduate levels (B.Sc., M.Sc. B.Tech. and M.Tech.). This book will also guide academicians across numerous HEIs-based formative and summative assessments, viva voce, and content preparation for study material purposes. Finally, for aspiring minds, a special chapter on Biotechnology Entrepreneurship has been created where they can learn the reasonable and technology-driven answers to various fundamental questions such as How they can be a successful Bio-preneur in the market, as well as multiple terminologies that can help students and academicians draw a synchronized curriculum for the subject involving Entrepreneurship. I'd want to express my gratitude to all Indian students and academicians who have expressed an intellectual interest in developing a purpose-driven campaign that can meet the sudden demand for scientific and research-based cognitive processes.

Providing an important and timely overview of research on the exciting area of entrepreneurship in biotechnology, The Handbook of Bioentrepreneurship examines one of the most promising industries of the 21st century. While genetically engineered food and biopharmaceuticals have made biotechnology part of our everyday life, starting a bioventure is among the most complex and risky entrepreneurial tasks given long development cycles, high technological and market uncertainty, and high capital intensity. Providing unparalleled in-depth and detailed analysis, this Handbook sheds light on business models and strategies, financing, cooperation networks between firms and universities, among other issues. With new developments in biotechnology increasingly in the news, this is an important source for readers interested in public policy, entrepreneurship, and business in the 21st century.

This volume seeks to catalyze the emergence of a novel field of policy studies: entrepreneurship policy. Practical experience and academic research both point to the central role of entrepreneurs in the process of economic growth and to the importance of public policy in creating the conditions under which entrepreneurial companies can flourish. The contributors, who hail from the disciplines of economics, geography, history, law, management, and political science, seek to crystallize key findings and to stimulate debate about future opportunities for policy-makers and researchers in this area. The chapters include surveys of the economic, social, and cultural contexts for US entrepreneurship policy; assessments of regional efforts to link knowledge producers to new enterprises; explorations of policies that aim to foster entrepreneurship in under-represented communities; detailed analyses of three key industries (biotechnology, e-commerce, and telecommunications); and considerations of challenges in policy implementation.
