My name is Flavio Rump and I am a Swiss/American Entrepreneur and Angel Investor. I cofounded an E-Commerce company called DeinDeal.ch which got acquired in 2011. Since then I have worked with and backed entrepreneurs in the fields of life science, education and tech.
In Fall 2017, I started asking myself why so much money was being invested into biomedical research, and why we haven’t found cures for the various diseases that affect all of us at some point in our lives.
This led me to start interviewing researchers, biotech CEOs, VCs, Pharmaceutical executives, doctors and other stakeholders to discover the biggest bottlenecks and opportunities in drug discovery.
Bio2040 is my effort to document some of my biggest learnings from those conversations. The people I interview are thought leaders and provide incredible insights into various bottlenecks and opportunities on how to improve biomedical research.
I hope you will find the content useful.
Bio2040 is a small but growing community of scientists, entrepreneurs with various different backgrounds. What connects us is a shared desire to advance biomedical research.
