During the study of natural sciences most student concentrate on science content. Economics and IP protection are not part of the curriculum. Finishing studies next steps are either research in science organization such as university or in companies. I followed this road to the book for 10 years before entering into venture capital investment banking, learning how IP and economics can be translated into business models. Until today my consulting and financing company helped 6 companies ranging from financing, service provider for science institution and companies to drug development in personalized medicine.
