Biotech can be a broad term.

What is a biotech startup? By definition, biotech startups are companies that use biological processes or products to create new treatments, services, and technologies. These companies develop products such as medicines, diagnostics tests, medical devices, biofuels, and agricultural biotechnology. While biotech startups often have an expensive upfront cost associated with their development, they can offer investors high returns if their product is successful in the market.

How do biotech startups work? At the beginning of a biotech startup’s development process typically begins with an idea or invention from someone or some group of people. This idea then moves through various stages of research and development before it makes its way to market. During this process, biotech startups often partner with academic institutions, research facilities, and venture capitalists to finance the development of their products. This process can take anywhere from several months to a few years before it reaches the market and is available for investors to buy into.
