BioCatalyst is a group of experienced business and scientific entrepreneurs who are focused on transitioning a scientifically validated product to an accepted product in the marketplace. BioCatalyst is an operating team, as opposed to an investment firm.
We provide the seed capital, experience and market knowledge to make this happen, at which point we raise expanded venture or corporate funding and organize a completely independent management team.
The transition from lab to a well defined market to 10 or more initial satisfied customers to a full independent company is what we define as the startup process. This path to success is well known to the BioCatalyst team, with multiple examples of previous success to prove this point. Companies which have benefited from these startup principles include Genzyme, Dyax (Biotage), Upstate Group, Instapak/Sealed Air and many others.
