Commercialisation of Intellectual Property is the final step in the invention and discovery process and is the necessary step to extracting value from investment in Research and Development. The skills required for successful commercialisation are often not easily available to aspiring entrepreneurs with life- and biosciences background – these skills are completely different from any that would have been developed in the course of training as a scientist.

Sustainability of commercial ventures (start-ups) in biosciences is a long process with many challenges. Most technology start-ups need to keep their cost down as low as possible and can typically not afford the laboratory infrastructure, and salaries for full time scientific and/or business resources.  In this “boot-strapped” environment many mistakes are made, wrong partnerships are entered into and often quality suffers due to lack of appropriate resources.
