There are several elements to consider when creating a Biotech business plan including the business model, any research from commercialization or clinical trials, the potential market, and any research to support the technical feasibility of the product. The largest mistake that is often made in Biotechnology business plans is the lack of quantification of the market potential, as some Biotech products have a very limited market and investors recognize this limitation. Another major inhibitor is the emphasis on deep technical aspects without regard for the business side of the company, such as commercialization or a go-to-market strategy.
The business model section in a Biotech business plan outlines what problem the company addresses and how it seeks to resolve it. If there is already another company that addresses the problem in the same way, the business model must demonstrate how your Biotech company does it differently. For instance, a non-invasive medical application method that improves an existing one through a patented technology must be quickly communicated and demonstrate why it is important. Pro Business Plans has worked several Biotechnology companies in order to efficiently reflect the competitive edge of its business model and how that is profitable to investors.
The marketing section of a Biotech business plan depends on the specific technology. For instance, some Biotech companies may have a licensing model whereby the partner with distributors responsible for downstream product management. If the Biotech company manages its own downstream operation at any degree, a marketing strategy will help it to more effectively lower the customer acquisition cost and enter the market with the lowest possible risk.
Investors would anticipate you to be well-versed in the current competitive landscape. Don't ever make the mistake of claiming that you don't have any competition. Even if they aren't obtaining the degree of happiness or effectiveness that your proposed model will deliver, your clients are already satisfying their needs in some way. You should offer a description of all important competitors in the competition section. This will need a lengthy investigation, but it is preferable to cover all possibilities than to exclude any. A detailed examination of the biotech business indicates that during the previous half-decade, the market has become significantly more intensively competitive. In fact, if you want to remain in this sector, you must be very innovative, customer-centric, and proactive. Demonstrate that you are aware of the key market characteristics (such as competition structure, size, and trends) and how you are positioning yourself to benefit from them.
The financial projections for a Biotechnology business plan should include a complete set of projections including the income statement, cash flow, revenue model, and balance sheet. A well-structured financial model will use third-party market research to determine the potential market size, sales of comparable technology or medications, and an analysis of your company’s operating expenditures. Additional financial modeling can also be performed including pricing strategy, break-even analysis, and financial ratios that may be compared against similar Biotech companies.
