Global BioTech Insight StudyMore Info Hide Info
A global qualitative research study to better understand the mindset, perceptions, and interests of the key target groups driving the BioTech segment.
The generated insights should led to a fine-tune of the clients activation approach, their entire communication tools — primarily in digital/social channels, but also for IRL such as events and conferences — to positively influence the perception and relevance of their brand.
We have conducted a qualitative research project to create insights into the respondents‘ media usage, to assess current communication of Leaps by Bayer and to steer future communication development.
The study was conducted within the three target groups: Science Talent, BioTech Investors and Visionaries/Futurists. All participating experts are very carefully screened and selected; they are all in professional roles that allow them to drive the development of the BioTech market and to have insight into crucial ahead-of-the-curve thinking and inside information.
This study is not statistically significant based on sample size and was conducted with 12 forward-thinking respondents in Europe and North America as virtual interviews.
All interviews lasted 2 hours along a common discussion guide with open discussion as well as pointed stimulus material to spark and trigger thinking and ideas.
We have selected people of the highest standing within the most important organisations of the segment, including:
/ BioTech Investors from Flagship Pioneering, SchmidtFutures and Tech.Bio
/ Scientists from the University of California, Rockefeller University as well as meaningful start-ups like Microbyre from Boston or Gourmey from Paris
/ Visionaries & Futurists that are best-selling authors, icons within the MIT institution or internationally acclaimed food anthropologists
