Understanding Dunedin’s Flourishing Biotech Ecosystem

Attracting interest and investment, as well as nurturing new talent, is essential for a successful biotechnology industry.

It goes without saying that the basis of each biotech company should always be built on world-class innovation. But that is just the beginning.

In order to develop a scientific discovery into a life-changing drug, we need products or services along with talents and specialists from all kinds of fields to be involved. These can include academia, research and development facilities, regulatory biotech lawyers and intellectual property law firms, as well as business development, commercial and financial experts, and access to smart capital and partners.

This sort of ecosystem is extremely hard to find! This is what we said in 2020, but Dunedin continues to build on its strong base and boasts one of the strongest biotech ecosystems throughout the country. 

Find out which companies have grown, the new start-ups and how they are accessing funding.
