"4C Accelerator Tübingen"

Business model development up to "investor readiness" through the elaboration of the 4C's of the medical life sciences:

  • C1-Commercialization | planning revenue in healthcare system (e.g. reimbursement by insurances)
  • C2-Certification | Approval of product & company
  • C3-Clinical Studies | Prove evidence of the product
  • C4-Copyright | Use data / property rights strategically

++ Overview ++

Compared to other industries the survival of life science startups is particularly challenging due to long time periods and the capital requirement until market maturity. This is particularly due to the 4 C’s:

  • C1-Commercialization | Many interest groups (e.g. patients, doctors, Ärztekammer, Pflegeheime) and market peculiarities (e.g. Selbstzahler, complex reimbursement rules of the gesetzliche Krankenkassen) make market access and the generation of revenue more difficult.
  • C2-Certification | The establishment of a quality management system for the company certification and the creation of the technical documentation for the CE approval of a medical product are mostly the basic requirements for a successful market entry.
  • C3-Clinical Studies | Proof of the clinical evidence, safety and performance of the product is essential and also costly and time-consuming for startups.
  • C4-Copyright | Using and maintaining patents, property and data rights strategically is important for company valuation, successful negotiations with investors or licensees and for planning exit scenarios.

This free training program concentrates on the life science-specific topics and conveys specific knowledge for single elements of a business model in this industry. Basic entrepreneurship content has a subordinate role, whereas this program i.a. seeks to answer the following questions:

  • Am I actually developing a medical device and if so, how do I determine this?
  • Which norms and standards do I have to consider?
  • Do I know the similarities between company certification and product approval?
  • What renumeration options does my product have in the health system?
  • Is a reimbursement by health insurance companies desirable for my product?
  • Is my product attractive for the self-pay market?

++ What is the objective? ++

The participants can survey the life science-specific start-up topics of the 4C's and thus plan ahead. The early strategic consideration of possible complications in the 4C's creates the prerequisite for attaining the necessary maturity in the shortest possible time and for convincing investors. Corresponding barriers to shortening the time to market have been identified and structured in an individual project plan.

At the end of this program the participants will be familiar with the reimbursement options in the healthcare market. They will know how quality management systems and regulatory processes become a strategic concept and how they effectively lead to market approval of a medical product. Participants can decide whether and what type of clinical trials they need and how best to implement them. At the end of the program, they will know how to deal with data protection requirements and how to strategically protect and exploit the product idea.
