Dr. Jan Lichtenberg: Building bridges with an eye for revolutions
The "Emerging Entrepreneur" category always features surprising entrepreneurs who dare to reconsider conventional practices and look at new ideas as the rule rather than the exception. In all economic sectors, this continually leads to useful innovations that make progress for the entire industry, and not just for the emerging entrepreneurs' companies. A great example is Dr. Jan Lichtenberg, who has won the award for Entrepreneur Of The Year 2015 in this category. With his biotech company InSphero AG, he aspires to bring about a revolution in testing practices in drug development, using his systems and materials to bring greater efficiency, reliability and effectiveness to the testing process. Organotypic 3-D micro-tissues are the centerpiece of the InSphero revolution. The jury was fascinated by the opportunities offered by Dr. Lichtenberg's innovation, and was impressed by his ability to concentrate the focus of a diverse, international research team of top specialists to target a common goal and stay on course. What's more, he also communicates eye-to-eye with investors. Dr. Lichtenberg is an entrepreneur of international standing and global potential, so it is no surprise that he can count himself among the winners of the Entrepreneur Of The Year award in 2015.
