This project is concerned with biotechnology start-up companies in the United States and Germany. The focus is a comparison of variables surrounding biotechnology start-up companies in both countries. Using interviews and a case study, the roles of these variables were analyzed. Through research, it has become apparent that despite needing further improvement in Germany, these variables have created a favorable environment for biotech start-up companies. A manual of recommendations was also created to aid entrepreneurs in starting biotechnology companies.
