What is Biophysics?
According to Wikipedia and other sources, in simple terms:
Biophysics is the field that applies the theories and methods of physics to understand how biological systems work.
Biophysics has been critical to understanding the mechanics of how the molecules of life are made, how different parts of a cell move and function, and how complex systems in our bodies—the brain, circulation, immune system, and others— work. Biophysics is a vibrant scientific field where scientists from many fields including math, chemistry, physics, engineering, pharmacology, and materials sciences, use their skills to explore and develop new tools for understanding how biology—all life—works.
In this conversation, Thomas Schubert and Christian Soschner will talk about the Role of Biophysics in Drug Development:
History of 2bind
The Role of Biophysics in Drug Development and Drug Discovery
Trends in Drug Discovery and Drug Development
A Networked Economy in the Gap Between Research and Market?
and much, much more...
Dr. Thomas Schubert received his PhD in Biochemistry 2012 from the University of Regensburg. Dr. Schubert joined 2bind 2012 and was called for the CEO position in 2013. Dr. Schubert received the degree Betriebswirt (business economist) in 2014.
2bind is a provider for biophysical outsourcing solutions.
2bind has a track record of >1400 successfully completed tasks in research projects with >350 customers (for ex. 8 for the top 10 Pharma companies) in the last 11 years.
The basis of their business is extensive knowledge of biophysical methods and assay formats. 2bind is a technology partner for three device producers (NanoTemper, Creoptix, Dynamic Biosensors) and is certified by these companies for applications of their technologies (also Wyatt has given us a certificate). Part of the technology partnership is also being a beta tester for these innovative device producers. This positions 2bind ahead of others in the market and underlines the expertise in biophysics.

Linkedin Algorithm Report: What you Need to Know for 2023
Before the pandemic, the B2B world didn’t care much about social media.
Since all real life events were shut down for two and a half years, the B2B environment also needed to go digital.
The adoption rate was extremely stepped, and when I ask business partners how they use the internet these days in their business processes, they almost always answer:
We use it for scouting the market to get information. Often they explain that they use AI to screen Mails and Newsletters for relevant information. Or just browse social media for entertainment and education.
Linkedin is one of the most important Platforms for B2B Marketing.
Here is a report that describes what you need to know about the Linkedin Algorithm:

The FTX Blow Up
Warren Buffett always says:
“When the tide goes out, you see who is naked.”
The economic tide seems to be over in 2022, and a Recession is looming around 2023.
With the economic turmoil comes bankruptcy declarations. It was a similar scenario back in the early 2000s and 2008.
One of the most recent blow-ups is the crypto exchange FTX. The writer Ben Hunt gives his perspective on the FTX case in a lengthy article worth reading.
The big question, as always, is:
Is it Fraud or just bad luck? Time will tell.
Here is an interview of SBF on the Bloomberg podcast, in which he compares cryptocurrencies to investing in empty boxes… well….
And here is the latest article describing the effects on investors in FTX:
A case worth studying to avoid similar mistakes in the own company.
The State of US Investments in Europe
After the two financial crises in 2000 and 2008, the US eco-systems kept thriving thanks to growing Venture Capital investments.
Europe was falling behind — many investors who lost capital in the two major crises never returned to the investment scene.
While public funding created a fantastic environment for basic research and big corporates established the necessary connections to the customers, the bridge in between was missing.
The US and China have 5–10 times more VC capital in the market than Europe.
What is the result? Many local companies don’t get funding, and the top tier relocates directly to the United States.
How are direct investments in Europe evolving?

Where last year provided fertile ground for companies to raise money - and at very high valuations - uncertainty reigns…

Books I am reading this week
NAMED A BEST BOOK OF 2022 BY THE NEW YORKER
National Bestseller * New York Times Editors’ Choice * Financial Times “Books to Read in 2022”
“A gripping account of PayPal’s origins and a vivid portrait of the geeks and contrarians who made its meteoric rise possible” (The Wall Street Journal)—including Elon Musk, Amy Rowe Klement, Peter Thiel, Julie Anderson, Max Levchin, Reid Hoffman, and many others whose stories have never been shared.
Today, PayPal’s founders and earliest employees are considered the technology industry’s most powerful network. Since leaving PayPal, they have formed, funded, and advised the leading companies of our era, including Tesla, Facebook, YouTube, SpaceX, Yelp, Palantir, and LinkedIn, among many others. As a group, they have driven twenty-first-century innovation and entrepreneurship. Their names stir passions; they’re as controversial as they are admired.
Yet for all their influence, the story of where they first started has gone largely untold. Before igniting the commercial space race or jumpstarting social media’s rise, they were the unknown creators of a scrappy online payments start-up called PayPal. In building what became one of the world’s foremost companies, they faced bruising competition, internal strife, the emergence of widespread online fraud, and the devastating dot-com bust of the 2000s. Their success was anything but certain.
In The Founders: The Story of PayPal and the Entrepreneurs Who Shaped Silicon Valley, award-winning author and biographer Jimmy Soni explores PayPal’s turbulent early days. With hundreds of interviews and unprecedented access to thousands of pages of internal material, he shows how the seeds of so much of what shapes our world today—fast-scaling digital start-ups, cashless currency concepts, mobile money transfer—were planted two decades ago. He also reveals the stories of countless individuals who were left out of the front-page features and banner headlines but who were central to PayPal’s success.
Described as “an intensely magnetic chronicle” (The New York Times) and “engrossing” (Business Insider), The Founders is a story of iteration and inventiveness—the products of which have cast a long and powerful shadow over modern life. This narrative illustrates how this rare assemblage of talent came to work together and how their collaboration changed our world forever.
