#67: Kai Lamottke - Bringing Innovation to Life Science From China & Europe
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.
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.
In this episode, we talk about

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