The venture capital in the biotechnology industry

by Grislain, Jacques-Henry, in DSpace, 2016

The Biotechnology investment sector has been booming over the last ten years delivering substantial financial returns for public and private investors and most VC firms have been raising and deploying a lot of capital into fast-growing Biotechnology companies. However, it may seem paradoxical that the Biotechnology industry attracts increasingly more Venture Capital and Public funding whereas it is one of the riskiest and volatile sectors and most early-stage companies do not generate revenues for years and have large financial needs to cover expensive clinical trials. My research will focus on Biotechnology investments in the US and will cover the value chain of a Venture Capital firm with a competitive analysis, a detailed review of current funding trends, a performance review analysis and a study to explain why Boston has become the n°1 cluster for Biotechnology in the US. The study also includes feedbacks from 25 interviews conducted with Founders and CEOs of Biotechnology companies, Life Sciences experts, Scientists and Venture Capital investors.
