Summary

This comprehensive guide takes first-time entrepreneurs through every step of founding a life science company. It covers all the business basics that we aren't taught in science and engineering courses. 
This book is based on interviews with hundreds of life science entrepreneurs and offers a blueprint of how a clinician, scientist, engineer or student could found a successful life science company. It runs through how to decide whether your science can be commercialized, intellectual property protection, regulatory hurdles, how to find the right co-founders, how and when to incorporate, how to write product development, marketing and business plans, and how to pitch your startup to investors. 
If you want to found a biotech, medtech, digital health or healthcare company, this book will give you the basics you need and give you templates on how to structure your company, write your product development plan, marketing plan and pitch deck. It also contains a glossary of the basic business terms you will need to know to speak with investors, mentors and advisors. 
Founding a life science company gives you the chance to change the health and lives of millions of people around the world. This sort of dream is why many of us studied science or medicine in the first place.  
First-time entrepreneurs have a steep learning curve. It takes an exorbitant amount of hard work to found and run a company. It is a rollercoaster ride, with exhilarating highs and devastating lows. You have to convince yourself and the world that you are creating something of value, a product or service that will solve a big problem. But for natural entrepreneurs, the challenges that come with starting a company are thrilling. Every day is different. Every day you are solving problems, meeting goals and climbing the mountain towards first revenue or a successful exit. 
This book was written to make that climb a little easier.

    The Universe as It Really Is -...

    The universe that science reveals to us can seem far outside the comfort zone of the human mind. Subjects near and far open up dizzying vistas, from the infinitesimal to the colossal. Humanity, the unlikely product of uncountable coincidences on unimaginable scales, inhabits a tumultuous universe that extends from our immediate environs to the most distant galaxies and beyond. But when the mind balks at the vertiginous complexity of the universe, science unveils the elegance amid the chaos. 
    In this book, Thomas R. Scott ventures into the known and the unknown to explain our universe and the laws that govern it. The Universe as It Really Is begins with physics and the building blocks of the universe—time, gravity, light, and elementary particles—and chemistry’s ability to explain the interactions among them. Scott, with the assistance of James Lawrence Powell, next tours the earth and atmospheric sciences to explain the forces that shape our planet and then takes off for the stars to describe our place in the cosmos. He provides vivid introductions to our collective scientific inheritance, narrating discoveries such as the shape of the atom and the nature of the nucleus or how we use GPS to measure time and what that has to do with relativity. A clear demonstration of the power of scientific reasoning to bring the incomprehensible within our grasp, The Universe as It Really Is gives an engrossing account of just how much we do understand about the world around us.

    A sophisticated and original introduction to the philosophy of quantum mechanics from one of the world’s leading philosophers of physics 
    In this book, Tim Maudlin, one of the world’s leading philosophers of physics, offers a sophisticated, original introduction to the philosophy of quantum mechanics. The briefest, clearest, and most refined account of his influential approach to the subject, the book will be invaluable to all students of philosophy and physics. 
    Quantum mechanics holds a unique place in the history of physics. It has produced the most accurate predictions of any scientific theory, but, more astonishing, there has never been any agreement about what the theory implies about physical reality. Maudlin argues that the very term “quantum theory” is a misnomer. A proper physical theory should clearly describe what is there and what it does—yet standard textbooks present quantum mechanics as a predictive recipe in search of a physical theory. 
    In contrast, Maudlin explores three proper theories that recover the quantum predictions: the indeterministic wavefunction collapse theory of Ghirardi, Rimini, and Weber; the deterministic particle theory of deBroglie and Bohm; and the conceptually challenging Many Worlds theory of Everett. Each offers a radically different proposal for the nature of physical reality, but Maudlin shows that none of them are what they are generally taken to be.

    The Nature of Space and Time

    Einstein said that the most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible. But was he right? Can the quantum theory of fields and Einstein's general theory of relativity, the two most accurate and successful theories in all of physics, be united into a single quantum theory of gravity? Can quantum and cosmos ever be combined? In The Nature of Space and Time, two of the world’s most famous physicists—Stephen Hawking (A Brief History of Time) and Roger Penrose (The Road to Reality)—debate these questions. 
    The authors outline how their positions have further diverged on a number of key issues, including the spatial geometry of the universe, inflationary versus cyclic theories of the cosmos, and the black-hole information-loss paradox. Though much progress has been made, Hawking and Penrose stress that physicists still have further to go in their quest for a quantum theory of gravity.

    The  world needs more women in STEM!  
     
    Increasing the presence of women in STEM is a business imperative. It is key to encourage women to study these fields and to go for jobs in STEM, it is a smart business decision. When women climb the leadership ladder, they add tremendous value to the organisation they work for and become role models for the next generation of women.
     
    Keeping smart women in STEM careers and getting them promoted is a number one priority for diversity leadership expert Gabriela Mueller Mendoza.
     
    This book is a goldmine of ideas and strategies to achieve that as we enter the 4th Industrial Revolution.
