Starting a Biotech Company

G. Steven Burrill, Burrill & Company

Burrill talks about how starting a biotech company is different from starting any other company in the world. In other companies, it is the customer who decides whether you will succeed, Burrill says. For a biotech company, the customer is 10 to 15 years away. There is a huge importance of regulators standing between you and the customer. Additionally, in the healthcare world, most of the products in the market increase the cost of the system. Finally, a biotech company is global from the day it has started.
