Lisa LaMotta reports on the 2015 Beyond Borders report, written by the consulting firm E&Y, which was released at the BIO Convention today. This report highlights the strength and the potential growth of the biotech industry. LaMotta captures the important findings of this paper in her blog Biotechs Have The Power:
“Currently, money is flowing into the biotech sector and many small companies now have enough capital – through venture rounds and a wide open IPO window – to bring drugs forward without a big pharma partner. For the time being, biotech is in charge.” – Lisa LaMotta
