Episode details

Innovation needs collaboration on a global scale. Making things happen requires entrepreneurs who love science and work day and night to connect the best minds globally and support them to translate their science into products and businesses.

In this episode, I have a conversation with Kai Lamottke, CEO and Co-Founder of Bicoll.

Speaker in this Episode:

Dr. Kai Lamottke is co-founder & CEO of Bicoll GmbH and Bicoll Biotechnology (Shanghai) Co. Ltd., the first German-Chinese biotechnology company. His expertise and knowledge in life science and innovation sectors in China and Europe are requested by corporates, SMEs, and organizations, like European Commission. The excessive network of business, academic and political contacts allowed him to achieve business governmental grants with a value of over 23 Mio. € up to now

The Bicoll Group is a privately-owned biopharmaceutical company which includes Bicoll GmbH headquartered near Munich in Planegg / Martinsried, Germany, and its wholly-owned subsidiary Bicoll Biotechnology (Shanghai) Co. Ltd.

Questions we will discuss:

  • From Science to Business

  • Bicoll’s Mission

  • Finding the Business Model

  • How to Establish Business Between Continents

  • Operating in a Pandemic World

I hope you enjoy the conversation the same way I did.
