After receiving a doctorate in molecular biology and biochemistry from Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Geottingen, Germany, Carsten Thiel ,Berlin- born biopharmaceutical and pharmaceutical expert, has remained keenly interested in how DNA carries the pre-written code for every person’s future. This has led to 25 years of successful involvement in the medical industry.
After breakfasting with his family and catching up on the daily news, Thiel feels empowered to start his day, which begins with spending up to 25% of his time with board members and investors in the company. A further 10% is spent with doctors and customers. Staff members are not left out of this line of communication with Thiel, who believes that cohesiveness leads to collaboration, and collaboration, to successful launching of new products.
Having launched many new products, Thiel believes that success was due to the fact that he has remained inquisitive and asked many question in the early evolution of a potential product. This, he believes, saved much time and avoided problems at the end. “boots on the ground,” and good communication skills, haven’t hurt either, says Thiel. This contact has given him direct insights from consumers. He also says that putting humanity, empathy, personality and understanding ahead of making a profit, has also helped him grow his business.
As a successful entrepreneur, Thiel takes his business seriously and encourages all CEOs, leaders and innovators to do likewise. He puts the emphasis on teamwork providing all employees with the tools they need for success, the leadership that instills confidence and the guidance they may seek to grow.
In looking to the future, Thiel is adamant in his belief that biotechnology will be huge . His thoughts lie in the direction of a biotech company that addresses the needs of an unserved population, perhaps delivering a breakthrough therapy for some now incurable disease.
