Venture capital funding for the biotech industry

It takes millions of dollars to transform an innovative idea to a commercially viable pharma product. Especially in developing countries where the government has other more important healthcare priorities, the role of the VC becomes even more crucial and necessary for early stage biotech company and its success. Find out how venture capitalists can tap on knowledge learnt from more established biotech ecosystem and apply these lessons in Asia.

Fostering biotech and bio-entrepreneurship in Asia: How do we build the next biotech unicorn in Southeast Asia?

Southeast Asia is extremely diverse. It is a home to near 620 million people across 11 countries, each with different languages and religions. Among the countries many are still in the developing stage where R&D is not as much a priority than providing necessity to minimise the income gap between the rich and the needy. Yet thriving biotech landscape offering innovative solutions is starting to be seen. What needs to be done to help these promising companies to fully realise their potential? How can ASEAN come together in supporting the biotech industry in the region, as well as building the next possible biotech unicorn in SEA?

The Macro View: What will it take for Asia’s biotech industry to really flourish?

Everyone knows it is too generic to classify all Asian countries in a single category. With the exception of China and India, the remaining part of Asia is complicated, fragmented and diversified. With growing GDPs and middle class populations, the potential of Asia’s biotech industry is undeniable in the eye of global leaders. The main question is, how can government and related stakeholders assist the biotech industry to flourish to provide more affordable, personalised medicine for its populations? How do countries move away from a “me-too” to “me-first” mentality, especially when it comes to pharma R&D?
