Craig's book saved an enormous amount of time in a variety of topics specific to only this industry including the pre-clinical development cycle, Phase 1,2,3 clinical trials, regulatory concerns, reimbursement issues, business development strategies, licensing norms for academic funded research, Bayh-Dole, and many more. The book does not stop at the conceptual level, but rather gives specific quantitative guidance for typical ranges to expect in negotiations. This was particularly important in negotiating with the university tech transfer office, for example, so that I knew the definition of a fair deal going in.
With significant startup experience, I did not expect to gather much insight from his discussion in areas that I already was familiar, but I was wrong. The book covers every aspect of what is needed to start a company and raise money, which is "where the rubber meets the road" in the startup world. Again, the biotech space affords funding options not available in other tech environments such as SBIR assistance and other grants. He covers all the bases in real business terms which are practical and chock full with metrics and guidelines. Haven written many business plans in the past, I wrote the first business plan without referring to his chapter on that topic. After I completed the plan, I read that chapter and concluded that it would be much better using his format and outline. So I rewrote the entire plan using Craig's format.
I had the privilege of speaking with Craig on a consulting level and I can also report that he is a good man and quite willing to help. In summary, purchasing this book was the best investment I have made in many years. Thank you Craig for helping the hopeless (which is where I was without your book)!
Este libro es de gran ayuda para comprender todo el proceso del emprendimiento dentro de la industria de la biotecnologia.
