2016-09-13The Emergence of 26 New Life Science Business Models

November saw the Swiss HLG hold their first webinar, which members met with a lot of interest. Professor Brian D. Smith guided members through his evolutionary approach to how business models in the life science industry are changing. He also provided key insights into how they could keep their business at the top of the ‘Pharma Jungle’.

If you would like to find out more details about this topic, Prof. Smith has written a book on the subject, Darwin’s Medicine.  You can purchase the book here.

We have more webinars planned for 2017, some of which will be available to friends and members of Swiss HLG. We will keep you up to date, as we roll out more of our start-up initiatives in the new year.

TOPIC: ‘The speciation of new business models in the life sciences industry.’

Professor Brian D Smith, of Bocconi and Hertfordshire Universities, is the world’s leading authority on the evolution of the life sciences market.  With 20 years in the industry, he has spent two decades advising many leading firms and studying how they are adapting to a changing environment.

In this webinar, Professor Smith will discuss his new book Darwin’s Medicine, which is the sequel to his influential and critically acclaimed Future of Pharma. This book explores the drivers of industry change and how leading pharmaceutical and medical technology companies are adapting their strategies, structures, and capabilities in practice.

Through the lens of evolutionary science, Professor Smith explores the speciation of new business models in the Life Sciences Industry. This sophisticated and highly original approach offers insights into:

  • The mechanisms of evolution in this exceptional industry
  • The six great technological and social shifts that are shaping its landscape;
  • The emergence of 26 distinct, new business models; 
  • The lessons that enable firms to direct and accelerate their own evolution.

These insights map out the industry’s complex and changing landscape and provide an invaluable guide to companies seeking to survive and thrive in this dynamic market.
