Successful companies in the life science and medical technology sectors build their business ideas on a scientific basis. As an entrepreneur and board member with 30 years of experience in life science, it is a welcome challenge for me to accompany the dynamic start-up team of Bottneuro on their way to combine research with practice. I was the former president of Novartis Switzerland. I graduated from 2011-2015 in law, after 24 years working for Novartis and have worked in more than 25 countries and am now active in various boards of regional SMEs start-ups. My mission in Bottneuro is to establish a successful franchising model.
