The US: To Go, or Not to Go?

Whether or not European biotechs should establish operations in the US may seem like a no brainer: it's the biggest drugs market, with more potential partners, better funding, more promising exits for investors and a more experienced management pool than Europe. But getting there-and getting noticed-isn't easy. And since most executives agree that going to the US half-heartedly isn't worthwhile, Europe's biotechs need to think hard about when and whether they're ready to go. For a minority, setting up in the US may not be the right solution-for now.
