The Dynasty model combines the work of a biotech company with that of a life sciences investor.
The biotech company partners with UK innovators who have developed products that are both relevant to China and already sufficiently developed to be commercialised in China. Dynasty develops the products and shares the downstream value with the innovators. Meanwhile the investment business sources Chinese capital to fund the UK biotech activities, and provides growth capital to larger science businesses in order to develop products in China.
The Dynasty model is a novel alternative to venture capital, powered by foreign direct investment, generating new exports for UK biotechs.
