(Re)Reading This Weekend (6/14/14)

There were a few long reads that I’ll be re-reading over the weekend, including:

This article profiles the blood diagnostics company, Theranos, and the founder, Elizabeth Holmes. While you will find the founder description interesting, I found myself drawn to the questions of business model, trade secrets and regulation.


From the media release: “The life sciences industry—generally thought to be a major contributor to America’s innovation engine— has in fact suffered a steep decline in entrepreneurship and job creation”
In addition to a closer look at their report, I’ll be interested to see how the sector has fared overall when the BIO/Battelle State Initiatives Report is released on June 24 as part of the BIO International Convention. You can check out the 2012 BIO/Battelle report here.


This post is a VERY data rich look at private biotech valuation.


In this post, Bruce provides some historical data about the pace of biotech company creation.
