Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biotechnology, An International Perspective

Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biotechnology, An International Perspective

Concepts, Theories and Cases

Damian Hine and John Kapeleris

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.
