For Biotech companies, strategic partnerships with pharmaceutical companies are very important. In addition, it is becoming increasingly difficult for pharmaceutical companies to take on the entire drug discovery process, from research to clinical development to commercialization.
For Biotech and pharmaceutical companies, strategic alliances require maximizing the use of various resources, information, and networks, including VC, PE, and shareholders.
For example, the way the initial outreach emailed can make a big difference in the final outcome. In fact, when top 20 Japanese pharmaceutical companies contact U.S. biotech companies, they often do not reply to their emails.
In this speech, I will show you how to effectively implement and prepare for strategic alliances. I hope you will make use of it in Sell-side, Buy-side, Fund-raising, M&A, etc.
