I am an entrepreneur with over 25 years of experience in healthcare, including 16 years of experience in business model design and validation in the life science area. As a qualified MD, I have successfully connected the two vastly disparate fields of medicine and business in my professional career.I founded trifermed, a business service provider specialising in corporate and business development for healthcare solutions., in 2002. As the CEO of the company, I transform my knowledge and experience in healthcare entrepreneurship into design and validation of business models, managing business development projects that have so far culminated in over 140 successfully executed business development deals in the human and animal health sector. Apart from my activity at trifermed, I am a frequent speaker at international congresses and mentor different programmes in public and private business and science universities. I also lecture as Professor on the elective course of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Healthcare, part of the International Master’s programmes at ESADE, one of the top business schools in Europe according to the Economist and Forbes.
