Business Model Based on Applied R&D and Fast Go-to-Market Strategy
Given that the current core activity of BIOFABICS is based on applied R&D (provided to clients in the form of R&D services), our business strategy does not depend only on lengthy, budget-intensive initial product development stages. Investing in BIOFABICS means investing in a real market based on pre-existing needs, not in the creation of new needs.
Flexible Investment Volume
Portugal offers a good business environment and a favorable climate for foreign capital both in the short term as well as in the long term. Investors who share our vision are very welcome to contribute to the expansion of BIOFABICS with their investments. We are aware that different investors follow different investment strategies. For this reason, we accept investments in various modalities and volumes, upon negotiation.
