Our three-Step Operating Model: Spot, Boost & Grow
We source a pipeline of disruptive Health Tech innovations from our proprietary scientific and academic network and develop them in a structural ecosystem, until they are ready to become game changing start-ups.
This phase is a highly selective process, where a number of unique projects are identified and developed. Every project starts with a strong scientific/technological breakthrough idea. Then the challenge is to bridge the gap between the science and the market. For each project, we put together multi-disciplinary teams of operational and scientific experts from the iBionext ecosystem and we bring in external expertise as needed.
We create and finance the selected start-ups and ensure that each of them has sufficient financial resources and operational support to achieve its objectives.
Once a project has gone through the various stages of the Spot phase, we create the company with a leading commitment in a Series A round, to ensure it has the resources to reach value creating milestones.
Through the company’s governance bodies, we make sure that the company executes its business plan, and we leverage our network and contacts to hire the right people.
The objective of the “Boost” phase is to optimize the company’s organizational chart, governance and operating processes and implement improvement actions identified during the “Spot” phase.
We provide continued support, growth financing, and access to our network to help our companies become leaders in their fields.
We can tap into our network of experts across disciplines, including science, intellectual property, manufacturing, regulatory strategy, marketing, etc.
Throughout the growth phase, we monitor the companies through board meetings and the various committees. We meet with the management regularly to discuss the progress of major development projects, operational performance against target key performance indicators.
We continue to explore collaborations and partnership to bring strategic value to your companies.
We are actively involved in preparing the divestment phase by leveraging our contacts to arrange trade sales and IPOs.
