How can we encourage the development of multiple drugs that each cost about $200 million and take about 10 years to bring to market?
Research done by Dr. Roger Stein and Prof. Andrew Lo suggests that it is possible to fund many drug trials simultaneously by structuring investment products that would appeal broadly to big investors like pension funds, insurance companies and sovereign wealth funds rather than traditional biotech investors. Although this idea is still in its early stages, several groups around the world have already begun putting these ideas into practice. Early registration ends 4/25/14!
Honest Tea co-Founder Barry Nalebuff ’80 shares the story of how his team started Honest Tea (one of the most beloved consumer brands and a pioneer in the organic food movement). His book prepares the starting entrepreneur for what to expect. Not your typical How I Built My Business book, the book discussed looks like a comic book. Barry will share in their journey, introduce some colorful characters, and make you a better entrepreneur along the way.
