Animal health is a latent $100Bn+ opportunity for biotech innovators.
Historically orphaned, venture investors and entrepreneurs are awakening to the sector’s potential.
Pioneers have much to gain from the massive scale and accumulated experience of the human biotech innovation ecosystem that has been built over the last 40 years.
Successfully leveraging technologies, talent, capital, and strategies from human biotech can dramatically improve the chances of startup success in animal biotech.

- The richness of opportunity in animal health biotech
- Strategies for entrepreneurs to rationally construct start-ups
